Clinical Master of Science Degree
Osteopathic residents at PCOM/Lankenau Medical Center have the
opportunity to earn a Clinical Master of Science (MSc) degree concurrent
to their residency training. Residents gain structured independent
research experience that leads to a completed thesis project, adding new
information in the resident's speciality field.
Generally, no courses are required to complete the degree. However, a
seminar series for resident presentations will inform residents of their
colleagues’ ongoing research activities in other programs. It also
provides an opportunity for collegial feedback on ongoing studies as
well as experience in presenting a research seminar.
As a value-added service, residents will be assisted by a professional
clinical medical writer to guide them through their MSc program, from
thesis initiation and clinical research development through to final
dissertation. This facilitation helps guarantee residents’ successful
completion of the MSc program and allows them to focus on their clinical
research experience while not detracting from their primary residency
