Partnership with St. Thomas reinked

The Houston Methodist Research (HMRI) Institute recently renewed its clinical partnership for a Master’s in Clinical Translation Management (MCTM) program with the University of St. Thomas (UST). The HMRI and UST have partnered on the MCTM degree program since 2014. The program has become well-established within the university and the Texas Medical Center with a number of accolades and two national rankings. MCTM is a one-year, online program that fast-tracks students through a rigorous curriculum and provides a robust understanding of the Life Sciences industry as well as the skills necessary to take on a career in this field. Most of the program is completed through online modules, but students also have the opportunity for in-person training, networking and professional development through residency periods and co-curricular offerings.
There also are three in-person residency periods during the program – the first in Houston, the second as part of an international study abroad program, and the final for the annual BIO International Convention. In addition to the three residency periods, students participate in a six-month long practicum course and capstone project, both of which utilize project-based learning to integrate elements of MCTM coursework into a hands-on experience. This practicum course includes the development of a business plan and pitch for a real-life biotech innovation of the student’s own choosing.
UST President Dr. Richard Ludwick and Houston Methodist Research Institute President & CEO Edward A. Jones sign a new partnership agreement.
