Through the Precision Health Graduate Certificate Program, U-M graduate and professional students have the opportunity to develop skills specific to the emerging field of precision health. This is the first program at U-M to focus on the competencies of precision health, and the first of its kind among US institutions to offer more breadth and depth of focus than programs in the more narrowly focused field of precision medicine.
Developed by U-M Precision Health’s Education & Training Workgroup, the certificate is administered by the Department of Learning Health Sciences (DLHS). Please see the DLHS website (medicine.umich.edu/dlhs/precision-health-certificate) for more information.
The program is open to PhD, MS, MA, M Engineering, and master’s- or doctoral-level health professional students and can be completed in two to four semesters. Applications are due August 1 for fall term and December 1 for winter term.
“The Precision Health Graduate Certificate Program is an excellent opportunity to develop the next generation of researchers who will shape increasingly personalized and customized health care delivery. The resources and expertise that exist at the University of Michigan make us uniquely qualified to bring together the many disciplines that play a role in precision health.”
