We are glad you are interested in applying to the Health Services and Outcomes Research (HSOR) program.
Most applicants to the master of science program have completed a doctorate degree in a health-related field (e.g., MD/DO, PhD, DNP, PharmD) or have a master's degree plus two to three years of research or relevant healthcare-related experience. Certificate applicants should have at least two to three years of research experience (graduate or professional).
Applicants who wish to enter the program to take courses for professional development are considered Non-Degree Special Students. These applicants should follow the instructions for the certificate program.
Applications are submitted via The Graduate School's online application. An application is considered complete only when all required supporting documents have been received. If you have questions about the requirements or the completeness of your application, please contact the program. GRE scores are not required.
For the required Statement of Purpose, applicants should state their objectives for pursuing graduate study and describe their professional goals and qualifications.
On the application's Program Information page, indicate whether you are applying for the master's program or a certificate option:
Applicants are required to submit two letters of recommendation. Letters should be submitted electronically via The Graduate School online application. In the recommendation section of the application, applicants enter the details for each letter provider, and the system will send an email prompt to that individual with a link to upload the recommendation letter.
Upload one set of transcripts from each postsecondary institution attended. Applicants should upload unofficial transcripts to the online application (unofficial transcripts are either electronic copies from the institution or digital scans of official transcripts). Transcripts should document all courses taken, grades received and (if applicable) degrees earned. All admitted students are required to have their previous institutions send official, sealed transcripts to The Graduate School before the end of the first quarter of enrollment.
