Clinical research plays a major role in translating scientific progress into improvement of patient care and optimal health resource allocation. It has become a sophisticated science requiring researchers to obtain highly specific training in health research methodology to assure ethical conduct and generation of valid results of clinical studies.

This postgraduate university programme is intended for university graduates in natural sciences with professional experience who pursue a career in health care research. Its objective is to qualify participants for designing, conducting, analysing, and presenting clinical studies. The programme provides students with a solid understanding of health research methodology and biostatistics.Students will also become familiar with international legal and ethical standards in clinical research.

Graduates of the postgraduate university programme will acquire the competence to successfully lead research projects and compete on an international level. Students successfully passing the postgraduate university course are grading with "Master of Science in Clinical Research".


“The Master of Clinical Research provided by the Medical University of Vienna is very comprehensive, yet very flexible. It covers all the aspects of conducting clinical research from drafting a project until publication. It is also led by very competent, cooperative and friendly team, knowing very well how to organise the courses to make it suitable for the needs of international students with their different backgrounds and perspectives. 

It enriched my knowledge and opened new work opportunities for me.”
