The Midwestern University College of Graduate Studies Master of Science in Precision Medicine is designed as an interdisciplinary professional dual degree in applied genomic sciences that aims to prepare healthcare professional students to utilize genomic information in the prediction, diagnosis, prognosis, prevention, and treatment of disease.
Upon program completion, students in the M.S. in Precision Medicine Program will have the foundational knowledge needed to:
- Comprehend genomic and other ‘omic data, describe how it is created and applied, and demonstrate basic analytical methods;
- Determine what those data mean in practical terms for a patient’s physical and mental health; and,
- Utilize their knowledge to determine how that data can best be used to meet the medical needs of individual patients or populations.
The Program both complements and expands the mission of Midwestern University to meet the educational needs of the healthcare community by preparing students for the new era of genomic medicine. Students enrolled as dual degree candidates in Midwestern University’s healthcare professional programs will expand their medical knowledge, understand genetic and genomic applications, and enhance their career options upon completion of this Program.
