Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This introductory graduate certificate lays the foundation for further study in clinical genetics and genomics and is suitable for students with no, or limited, prior genetics training. You will finish the certificate with the ability to identify future learning needs in order to maintain an expert working knowledge in genomics. Nested within the two-year Master of Genomics and Health, it provides an introduction to the current and potential impact on health and medicine brought about by advances in genomics and related technologies. The program adopts a blended learning approach, utilising both self-paced online learning, and face-to-face tutorials and workshops that allows you to apply your knowledge in a problem-based learning environment. The course is led by research and education leaders within the Melbourne Children's Campus, incorporating expertise from the Royal Children's Hospital, the Murdoch Children's Institute for Research and the University of Melbourne Department of Paediatrics.
50 credit points comprising compulsory subjects.
