PHPD Introduces New Program: Master of Science in Development and Regulation of Medicines and Devices

MS-DRMD

Tufts University School of Medicine is excited to introduce a new program–a Master of Science in Development and Regulation of Medicines and Devices (MS-DRMD). The program offers a unique opportunity for individuals who are looking to broaden their intellectual base and enhance their career options through intensive training in the broad array of disciplines that help bring medical products to market.    

The MS-DRMD Program is closely aligned with the activities of Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development (CSDD), an internationally recognized and renowned academic center that develops and provides strategic information to help developers, regulators, and policy makers improve the efficiency and productivity of biomedical innovation. For nearly 40 years, Tufts CSDD has conducted scholarly analyses that address economic, scientific, legal, and political issues that affect the development and regulation of human therapeutics. 

Professionals interested in expanding their careers in the life sciences should consider the MS-DRMD program.  It provides exposure to the core disciplines of small molecule pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, vaccines, medical devices, and in vitro diagnostics. In addition, students are required to complete a capstone project prior to graduation, which enhances the learning experience and can prepare them to enter this rapidly growing sector.

This unique program is tailored for working professionals who want to attend classes on a part-time basis in the evening and consists of twelve credits to be completed over two academic years, including a summer session. With its connection to the Tufts CSDD and its ideal location, this Master of Science in Development and Regulation of Medicines and Devices program can offer the kind of training that opens doors for professionals interested in careers in the life sciences.
