Now Accepting Applications: Precision Medicine Master of Science Degree & Certificate Program
The Medical College of Wisconsin is pleased to share that the Institute for Health & Equity has launched the new Precision Medicine Master of Science degree and certificate program (PM Ed)! The PM Ed program has been designed for genetic counselors, physicians, nurse practitioners, and other healthcare professionals looking to further their education in genomics and enhance their practice using innovative and cutting-edge techniques. The Precision Medicine program will provide advanced training to clinicians to diagnose, treat and prevent disease by accounting for individual variation in genes, environment, and lifestyle to meet the upsurge in precision medicine patient care needs.
The PM Ed program has more than 18 course directors, including 11 physicians, who lead the courses as they relate to their specialized areas of research and clinical expertise within precision medicine. Learners will be able to customize their educational experience by choosing elective courses to best meet their needs and work with faculty who share similar research interests.
Additionally, the Precision Medicine program offers a flexible, exclusively online schedule for busy clinicians, meeting for eight online synchronous class sessions every other week over a 16-week course period. By 2023, all courses will be converted to an asynchronous format, allowing even further flexibility. The Precision Medicine program is currently accepting applications for the Spring 2022 semester. The deadline to apply is December 1.
