What Alumni Have To Say About the Program:

This program gave me a better working understanding of clinical research and of biostatistics; it was a good starting off point for further clinical research.

Lori B. Daniels, MD, MAS, FACC
Associate Professor of Medicine

Dr. Daniels

The CREST/MAS program not only provided me the skill set I needed to conduct my own clinical research, but I also use it daily to help students, residents and fellows design and conduct their research projects (all types, including clinical). 

Brookie M. Best, PharmD, MAS,
Associate Professor of Clinical Pharmacy and Pediatrics, Associate Dean for Admissions and Outreach
Distinguished Teaching and Senate Service Awardee



The CREST program gave me a solid background into research methods and got me interested in pursuing my masters and PhD in public health. 

Noha H. Farag, MD, PhD, MAS
CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service Officer

Dr. Farag

Taking the CREST/MAS classes helped me to understand the intricacies of clinical research and how I can go about planning one on my own.  The contact I have with professors and students also helps to sustain my interest in pursuing research.

Thuy Anh Le, MD, MAS

The CREST program gave me a good understanding of all the aspects of clinical research. More specifically, how to create sound research questions, how to prepare an IRB and how clinical research is combined with a day-to-day job.

Pieter J. Helmons, Pharm.D, MAS
Pharmacist Specialist - Pharmacoeconomics 

Dr. Helmons

The Program gave me not only critical academic/practical knowledge for conducting Clinical Research, but also life-long friends and teachers who encourage me, which is very important, I recognized, for keeping passion/energy for the study.
