The Office for Master's Education is the home of academic and professional training within the Biological Sciences Division. We currently offer a Master of Public Health (MPH) and Master of Science in Public Health Sciences for Clinical Professionals (MSCP) degree. Additional new and innovative programs in the health and biological sciences are currently under development with faculty across the Division. Please contact us for more information.
The Master of Science in Public Health Sciences for Clinical Professionals offers students a course of study in the theory, methods, and concepts of biostatistics, epidemiology, and health services research needed to design and carry out clinical and epidemiologic research programs. It is designed for the professional enhancement of individuals who already have doctoral-level expertise in Medicine and related clinical disciplines. The program can be completed in one year of full-time study, or it can be undertaken in conjunction with a clinical fellowship or training program, in which case the course work may be distributed over a longer period.
Students in the program acquire skills with basic statistical methods, followed by additional training in the fundamental theory and methods of epidemiology, biostatistics, and health services research. Students then have the opportunity to focus on gaining expertise in one of these disciplines by selecting relevant electives and research projects.
*New program launching in Fall 2021. Applications are currently being accepted.* The Master of Public Health (MPH) prepares students for careers as public health professionals and researchers. Students in the MPH program develop proficiency across several public health disciplines, including biostatistics, epidemiology, health policy and management, social and behavioral sciences, and environmental health sciences. Additionally, all students choose to focus their studies in one of three areas of concentration: Epidemiology and Global Health, Health Policy, or Data Science. By completing both a practicum experience and capstone project, students leave the program with hands-on training in public health research or applied public health practice.
Upon completion of the program, students will generally be able to:
This course is offered online in two versions: physicians course and nurses course. The course covers the essentials of neurological critical care following acute events such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, intracranial hemorrhage, cerebral edema, intracranial hypertension and seizure (among other pathologies) and is meant for clinicians working in neurological and non-neurological specialties, such as internal or family medicine, emergency medicine, neurosurgery, anesthesia and critical care medicine.
Descripción del Curso de Cuidados Neurocríticos y Stroke
Este curso se ofrece en línea (online) en dos versiones: curso para médicos y curso para enfermería. El curso cubre los aspectos esenciales de la atención neurológica crítica después de eventos agudos como accidente cerebrovascular, trauma de cráneo, hemorragia intracraneal, edema cerebral, hipertensión endocraneana y convulsiones (entre otras enfermedades) y está destinado a médicos que trabajan en especialidades neurológicas y no-neurológicas como medicina interna o familiar, neurocirugía, anestesia, medicina intensiva o medicina de emergencia.
Pharmacovigilance, also known as drug safety, is the pharmacological science relating to the collection, detection, assessment, monitoring, prevention, and communication of adverse effects with pharmaceutical products. Combining expertise across disciplines of data science, informatics, medicine, and health research, the Office of Master's Education is developing a new certificate.
We will be offering four courses in 2020-2021 including:

The BSD Office for Master’s Education sponsors the Computational Life Sciences Seminar Series (CLSSS).
Since 2017, CLSSS has served to highlight research in the fields of bioinformatics and computational life sciences, foster collaborations, and provide a broad audience for feedback on current research. The format of the series is flexible (e.g., standard seminars, lightning talks, etc.), and seminars feature both University of Chicago researchers and guest speakers from other institutions. CLSSS talks are open to faculty, students, and researchers throughout the University of Chicago community. An archive of past talks is available on the CLSSS website.
