The MS-BATS program is officially paused, with an expected restart in 2024.

Announcement from Dean Stamos

The MS-BATS Master's program trains students to conduct high-quality multidisciplinary clinical research at the intersection of basic science and clinical medicine. Students from varying levels of training, including medical students, residents, fellows, physicians, nurses, and others interested in excelling as an effective clinical researcher will benefit from this program.

The dual degree MD/MS-BATS program is intended to integrate clinical research training skills with the medical school curriculum by allowing medical students to be enrolled in both degree programs concurrently.


MS-BATS Master's Program

Students focus on and establish a solid foundation in the fundamental disciplines underlying modern biomedical and clinical research.

The MS-BATS program at UCI took me from research staff to study investigator and project scientist. The skillsets learned and mentors gained have been foundational to my research career. -Linda Huynh, MS-BATS graduate
