The Postdoctoral Diploma Program in clinical and translational science requires a minimum of 12 Mayo Graduate School didactic credits with a GPA > 3.0, attendance at the "Writing for Biomedical Publication" workshop, and preparation of a manuscript based on the results of your clinical and translational research project.

If you are able to commit 100 percent of your time to the Postdoctoral Diploma Program, you can complete the 12 credits and your research project and manuscript within one year. The program will take longer if less than 100 percent of your time is available.

Course work component

All course work for the Postdoctoral Diploma Program is offered through Mayo Graduate School. Of the 12 didactic credits needed to complete the program, seven are required and five are elective. The required courses are offered twice per year, beginning summer quarter and winter quarter.

Your five elective credits should be selected based on your career goals and in consultation with your mentor. These may be chosen from Mayo Graduate School courses related to clinical and translational science or from the full listing of Mayo Graduate School courses.

Your seven required credits will be fulfilled by taking these courses:
