Innovative Education for the Health Care Revolution
The human genome is the key to the personalized health care of the future.
Shenandoah University and Inova have partnered to offer a master’s degree in pharmacogenomics and precision medicine for health care professionals and individuals with undergraduate science degrees, interested in exploring this fascinating field of study and applying knowledge of the human genome to clinical practice. This degree prepares you for career opportunities in biologic technology, at genetic testing laboratories, or within the pharmaceutical industry. It also provides you with the skill set needed to pursue specialized fields in health care that are poised for growth.
We understand that your time is precious. One track of our master’s program blends traditional classroom, laboratory and online instruction, while a second track provides exclusively online instruction. Both tracks are designed to provide the schedule flexibility you need.
Some of the areas covered include:
- Genetic predictors of disease
- Applying genetic principles to guide therapeutic decisions
- Mastering genetic interpretation tools
- Ethical, legal and social implications of the human genome
