For practicing clinicians looking to advance their careers, the University of Missouri’s School of Health Professions has three new 100% online options.
The Department of Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences is launching a master’s in clinical and diagnostic sciences with emphasis areas in clinical laboratory science, imaging sciences and respiratory therapy.
Focus on leadership
The three new programs are designed for credentialed clinicians who want to learn to lead fellow clinicians. With a blend of interprofessional classes and discipline-specific classes, the master’s program prepares graduates for effective leadership in interprofessional workplace environments.
Students who pursue the online master’s in clinical and diagnostic sciences will be prepared to teach courses for educational programs in clinical laboratory science; lead interprofessional teams of clinicians in the hospital/clinic setting; or take on a nonclinical role in sales, marketing, or product or customer support.
Interdisciplinary course work
The master’s in clinical and diagnostic sciences is a customizable interdisciplinary program that allows students to craft a degree that suits their specific educational needs and career goals.
Students start with core clinical foundation courses designed to introduce students to graduate-level concepts. They choose a leadership graduate certificate offered by the School of Health Professions or by a partner MU school or college to achieve a high level of depth in an area of their interest. Students also take emphasis area-focused electives — in clinical laboratory science, imaging sciences or respiratory therapy — to further knowledge of their profession.
The new online clinical and diagnostic sciences master’s programs are 100 percent online; no campus visits required. The new programs are currently accepting applications for the Summer 2020 semester, with classes beginning in June, and the Fall 2020 semester, with classes beginning in August.
