What Our Graduates Say about the MSCR Program (formerly known as Clinical Investigation, MSCI)

“I would encourage anyone considering the clinical research field to check out the MS in clinical investigation program at BU. Stacey Hess Pino, and Janice Weinberg were so helpful throughout my time there.”  Hannah Tunstall, ’17

“I thought you would be interested to know that I passed the SOCRA CCRP certification exam. Thank you for your help, I couldn’t have done it without my professors in the MSCI program!” Marisa Immormino, ’15

“I credit the MSCI program for giving me the foundation I needed to take that next step in my career.” Alison Occhuiti, ’17

“The program was awesome.”  Sivan Mauer, ’17

“I gained A to Z knowledge of clinical research, including study design as well as regulatory process.” – Recent graduate

“Unique perspective combining the regulatory, contract research organization and site considerations of clinical research that I still don’t think can be found in any other program.”– Recent graduate

The Clinical Research program was the perfect compliment to my career. Upon entry into the program I was working full time as a Clinical Study Manager, and I was interested in expanding my Clinical Management competencies. I ended up learning so much more than that! I was challenged to solve for situations I never had previously experienced, and from time to time I find myself referencing my class notes in my career. I also made long lasting friendships, which are truly invaluable. I recommend this program to anyone new to Clinical Research, and to anyone who is interested in expanding their expertise.” Cara Pepler, ’19

The MSCR program gave me the knowledge base I needed to work in an interdisciplinary research environment juggling multiple roles and responsibilities.” Reha Jhunjhunwala, ’19
