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.
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.
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.
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.
