To obtain a "Certificate of Completion" GCSRT students must fulfill all of the program’s academic and attendance requirements listed below:

GCSRT Foundation Courses

The GCSRT Foundation Courses curriculum provides a strong foundation of knowledge and skills across the broad spectrum of clinical science. Students are required to complete all related individual course-related assignments and receive a “pass” by participating in all components of the foundation courses.

Concentration and Elective Courses

All GCSRT students must meet the requirements of the concentrations and elective courses in which they are enrolled.

Submission of Course-Related Assignments

The program requires all assignments, typically quizzes, to be submitted on time and achieving a passing score (a minimum score of 70% unless otherwise noted).

Team Assignments

Students are put into teams at the beginning of the year. Each student must actively contribute to all five (5) team assignments.


The program requires that students must pass two multiple choice question exams to demonstrate proficiency in learning the presented material: the first (midterm exam) will be held in December 2016 and the second (final exam) will be administered in May 2017.

Capstone Proposal

The program requires the Capstone Proposal, as well as the peer reviews, to be submitted by the appointed deadlines noted in the timeline provided at the beginning of the year. A “pass” must be obtained on the final submission.

Attendance Requirements

Attendance at Workshops

Attendance at the workshops is a required feature of this program. If a student cannot attend a workshop, a petition must be submitted to the GCSRT Education Committee for review and approval as soon as possible prior to a workshop.

Attendance of Webinars and Team Presentations

The program requires students to attend scheduled live webinars. However, if a student cannot attend the live webinar due to occasional scheduling conflicts, it is possible to review the recording of the webinar. Students are expected to view a minimum of 75% of the webinars.
