These certificates are intended for people with graduate degrees either seeking senior career positions or further training and credentialing in the biomedical writing field. Each certificate program can be completed part-time in 8 months and requires a “B” average in 4 courses, each 3 credit hours. Certificate courses may be applied toward the master of science degree.
