Culminating Events:
The master's thesis documents the independent research of the student and demonstrates mastery of her/his primary area of interest. Thesis research is conducted under the direct supervision of academic advisors from both the College of Public Health and the Lewis Katz School of Medicine. The specific topic for research should be of current interest in the professional community and relevant to translational clinical research. After a research topic is selected, a thesis proposal is submitted describing a plan for completion of the proposed research. The student may continue the research only after the initial proposal is approved by the committee.
