Doctoral Minor

The Division of Clinical Pharmacology at Indiana University School of Medicine offers a doctoral minor in Therapeutic Development and Translation. This program provides future scientists and medical researchers an opportunity to jumpstart their careers through a more complete understanding of the drug discovery and development process—from bench to bedside.

The Therapeutic Development and Translation Doctoral Minor prepares students for careers in biomedical science through learning about how new medicines are discovered, developed and approved for human use.

This 12-credit program is anchored by CLPH-D 501 (Discovering Novel Treatments) and CLPH-D 502 (Developing Clinically Approved Medicines). Six other elective credits are required.
