The Dresden International University (DIU) Master’s Program in Clinical Research (MPCR) is designed to provide training in the methodology and practice of clinical research. It creates an international platform for medical scientists which is strongly based on teamwork, creativity, out-of-the-box-thinking and multidisciplinary collaboration.
"Principles and Practice of Clinical Research (PPCR)" is an international nine-month distance-learning program offered by the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health*. Thanks to our cooperation with Harvard, DIU recognizes all grades and achievements obtained during the PPCR program as equivalent to ECTS. Graduates of the PPRCR course can directly continue with our Master’s program and shorten their study time. In the end students receive the academic title Master of Science (M. Sc.) from the Dresden International University.
Our lecturers do not just give teacher centered lectures but rather collaborate with you to generate new ideas and research questions, develop new thinking strategies and help you further develop your individual skills. This unique and very close and open relationship between students and teachers is also a mutually beneficial way of exchanging ideas and creating a strong professional network.
In addition to the theoretical background, we enable our students to apply the practical aspects of clinical research. The negotiation of contracts and the independent development and implementation of clinical research projects have priority. The evaluation of chances and risks of a project as well as the interpretation and evaluation of the effects which can result from the clinical study are essential for the MPCR study course.
