The Department of Biostatistics at U-M is accepting applications for the Clinical Research Design and Statistical Analysis (CRDSA) program On Job/On Campus M.S. starting October 2021.

The program is designed for health care professionals who are involved in clinical research. It helps them develop expertise in research design and statistical analysis while continuing their professional employment ( . 

The U-M School of Public Health pioneered the non-residential OJ/OC format in 1972. Approximately 800 students have successfully completed the CRDSA program since then.

The course schedule involves a mix of online and in-person sessions. The online sessions involve viewing pre-recorded videos, completing assignments and attending online discussion sessions. For the in-person sessions, participants meet in Ann Arbor for a four-day weekend (Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday) at least two times during each term for 30 hours of class time and for evaluations. Participants complete course assignments and work on projects while remaining in their jobs.

Students can earn 25 CME credits after completion of the program.
