The goal of the Precision Health Graduate Certificate is to train a cadre of precision health scientists to apply cutting-edge, multidisciplinary knowledge in the pursuit of improving patient and population health. Designed for masters and doctoral students enrolled in degree-granting graduate programs at the University of Michigan, the Precision Health Graduate Certificate is approved by the Rackham School of Graduate Studies.
Students are encouraged to take classes outside their core degree program/department. Completion of the program is expected in 2-4 semesters and requires 12 total credit hours.
Applications are due August 1 for fall term and December 1 for winter term.
NOTE: The certificate is open to all PhD, MS, MA, M. Engineering, and masters or doctoral level graduate students enrolled at the University of Michigan. This would include students who are in graduate or professional degree programs not administered by Rackham such as an MPH, MSW, PharmD, DDS, JD, MBA just to name a few examples.
Attendance at other non-credit, community-building activities, encouraged, but not required, such as meeting with other students at seminars in addition to guest speakers when available, networking with external advisory board at the annual Precision Health Symposium and other opportunities as they arise.
The Precision Health Graduate Certificate Program aims to provide core experiences in the three precision health domains (Discovery, Treatment and Health) and the following six competency domains:
Graduate students interested in enrolling in the Precision Health Graduate Certificate Program are encouraged to review the prerequisites required for each course they are planning to use toward the certificate.
As a first term graduate student, you are not eligible to apply until your grades are posted indicating a minimum GPA of 3.0.
