Midwestern University is pleased to announce a new online graduate program in precision medicine.
Precision medicine is an emerging approach for personalizing disease treatment and prevention strategies that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. Precision medicine uses this detailed information, paired with a patient’s health history, to create customized care and treatment plans. This approach is already in use in treating diseases such as cancer, neurological disorders, infectious diseases, and rare childhood disorders.
The Precision Medicine Program at the Midwestern University College of Graduate Studies (CGS) opens June 1st and is a dual-degree program for its students of osteopathic medicine, veterinary medicine, dental medicine, and optometry, offering either a Master of Science in Precision Medicine or a Post-Graduate Certificate in Precision Medicine. Starting in 2022, a stand-alone Post-Graduate Certificate option will also be available. The Program will provide current and practical knowledge of fundamental areas of genetics, genomics, biomarkers, and bioinformatics in a flexible online format.
