Personalized and Genomic Medicine Online Graduate Certificate Program


The personalized & genomic medicine certificate program provides an opportunity for current and future healthcare professionals, researchers and recent graduates of scientific programs to acquire knowledge and skills in the emerging field of personalized medicine. 

Personalized medicine is an evolving scientific and clinical reality with the potential to transform healthcare and improve health outcomes.  Personalized medicine requires the integration of numerous data sources, including clinical observations and imaging, -omics datasets (e.g., genomic, transcriptomic, epigenomic, metabolomic and proteomic data), and electronic health records.  This online certificate program focuses on genomics, including the genetic underpinnings of disease and treatment response as well as integration of genetic data with other -omics and electronic health data. 

After completion of the certificate program, students will have the skills and knowledge to enable them to incorporate the principles of personalized medicine into their research, clinical, and industry careers.
