PHS Education & Academics

Public Health Sciences oversees various programs, all dedicated to providing focused education and research.

Master of Science in Clinical and Population Translational Sciences (CPTS)

In the past, basic, clinical, and community-based researchers operated in separate domains, often creating barriers to the translation of scientific findings into widespread improvements in human health. To prepare scientists to address this translational gap, the Division of Public Health Sciences offers a Master of Science degree in Clinical and Population Translational Science (CPTS). The certificate or degree can be completed in conjunction with undergraduate and graduate medical training, as well as doctoral level training in basic science. This program is among a small number of similarly structured graduate programs in the United States, placing it on the cutting edge of graduate education.

Master of Arts in Bioethics

As a branch of applied ethics, bioethics addresses ethical and policy issues raised by the biosciences and their applications, reaching from the laboratory to health care delivery to industry and government, affecting not only individuals but also the wider society. The Master of Arts in Bioethics program at Wake Forest University is designed to provide students with knowledge and skills that enable them to better address the bioethics issues arising in biomedical research, clinical medicine and health policy. Many students enrolled in this program are or will be career professionals in medicine, law, science, or religion, and others who are actively engaged in health care delivery and/or health care administration. Prospective students may apply to the master’s, the graduate certificate, or one of the dual degree programs. Part-time and full-time applicants are welcome.

Post Doctoral Training Program in Cancer Survivorship

The program seeks individuals with recent doctorates (PhD, DrPH, MD, DO) in health-related areas as well as more experienced individuals with similar degrees wishing to change to or more fully develop their cancer survivorship research. Two to three years of funding with salary stipends are offered along with tuition, health insurance, research support, and travel allowances. Trainees may opt to earn an MS degree in Clinical and Population Translational Sciences as part of their training. The training program is funded through a National Cancer Institute R25T grant. Traineeship can begin at anytime. To be eligible, you must be a US citizen or permanent resident.
