Precision medicine personalizes disease treatment and prevention strategies for customized patient care. 

P站视频鈥檚 College of Graduate Studies is now offering a stand-alone Post-Graduate Certificate Program in Precision Medicine for currently-practicing clinicians and professionals in the biological sciences.

The Precision Medicine Program was originally established as a dual-degree/dual-track program for students in all healthcare professions, offering either a Master of Science in Precision Medicine or a Post-Graduate Certificate in Precision Medicine. The new stand-alone option opens the field of study to practicing clinicians with graduate-level healthcare degrees or working professionals with graduate-level biological or biomedical sciences degrees, enabling them to augment their skills and knowledge to include current and practical knowledge of fundamental areas of genetics, genomics, biomarkers, and bioinformatics. Like the dual-degree/dual-track program, the stand-alone Post-Graduate Certificate Program is available in a flexible online format, which is well-suited to the busy schedules of working professionals. Alumni from P站视频鈥檚 healthcare professional programs are especially invited to apply.

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鈥檚 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.
