What to Expect
In 16 months or less, you’ll earn your master’s with a specialty in healthcare or in research. Our program includes a wide variety of course options such as immunology, cancer biology, neurodegeneration, and pathology.
Our faculty—who are recognized internationally for their expertise—play a large role in student success. Beyond coursework, a faculty member will mentor you for your final project and advise you on publishing it in an academic journal. Our students go on to medical school, residency programs, PhD programs, and careers in the biotech industry.
We also offer an MD/MS, if you want to get into basic or clinical research as a career. This five-year dual-degree program includes one year of research, and you will receive a stipend for completing that thesis rather than paying for an additional year.
A part-time Master of Science in Pathology is also available to lab technicians at CWRU.
