The Center for Genomic Medicine and the University of Utah offer a number of educational opportunities for scientists and health care professionals including: courses, graduate education, training programs, events and web-based educational resources.
Foundations in Personalized Health Care (CME offered)
This survey course is designed to introduce students to many facets of the emerging field of personalized health care.
Genetics and Medicine: Ethical, Legal, & Social Issues
This course immerses students in the emerging ethical, legal, and social issues facing the field of genomic medicine.
Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI)
This program is designed to provide a mentored research experience for fellows and junior faculty members at the University of Utah School of Medicine and other health science departments. It provides training in clinical research, preparing professionals for careers in clinical investigation, both in academic medicine and the allied health sciences.
Master's Degree Program in Genetic Counseling
The University of Utah offers a two-year master’s degree program in Genetic Counseling that integrates didactic coursework, clinical rotations, supplementary community activities, and an independent research project to best prepare students for a successful career in genetic counseling.
Certificate in Personalized Health Care
This certificate program is designed for medical and graduate students at the University of Utah who wish to better understand the many aspects of personalized health care through both didactic and experiential learning.
By developing clinical skills and engaging students in rigorous scientific training, the MD/PhD. Program prepares medical students for careers as physician-scientists.
Bioscience PhD Program
The Bioscience PhD Program is comprised of the Molecular Biology Program and Biological Chemistry Program. These umbrella programs are distinct in their core curriculum and requirements and provide students access to 11 departments at the University of Utah. Both have access to the same resources, which are designed to support collaborative, interdisciplinary science. The programs allow students to obtain a broad scientific education, yet tailor their training to their specific interests.
Biomedical Informatics PhD Program
This program provides intensive coursework and research training with the goal of training independent researchers. The program includes a Bioinformatics track, which helps students develop skills in the application of bioinformatics and statistical genetics analysis, with a focus on translational studies and genomics.
T32 in Genomic Medicine
This postdoctoral training program prepares physicians and basic scientists to be leaders in genomic medicine.
TL1 Training Program
This training program provides predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees with the skills required to develop a career in multidisciplinary clinical and translational research.
KL2 Mentored Career Development Scholar Program
This training program offers training for mentored research and career development support for clinical junior investigators. Its goal is to stimulate innovative research initiatives and career development.
Genomics Summer Research for Minorities (GSRM) Internship
The Genomics Summer Research for Minorities (GSRM) internship provides a ten-week summer research program for undergraduate students interested in genomics research, personalized medicine and biosciences.
Frontiers in Precision Medicine Annual Symposium (CME offered)
This annual symposium tackles current topics in the field with experts from diverse backgrounds from across the country in an interactive, panel-based format. Recordings of all previous symposiums have been archived at the link below.
Utah Genome Project Genome Rounds
Held the 3rd Friday of every month from 1-2pm, Genome Rounds is an opportunity for University of Utah Faculty and Staff to address challenges and learn from the successes of colleagues in the genomics community. It is intended to be a highly interactive forum where discussions are encouraged.
Web-Based Educational Resources
Web-Based Educational Resources
This center offers an educational module to learn about genetics and precision medicine.
Genetic Testing in Healthcare
Learn about genetic testing and its process: the types of tests available, how tests are developed and interpreted, and how teams of medical professionals work together throughout the process to enhance medical care.
