Genomics can provide new treatments and cures for diseases as well as offer solutions to pressing problems facing mankind. However, the study of genomes opens the door to unintended social, business, legal, and ethical consequences. For a growing number of professions, a working knowledge of genomics is needed to interpret genomic data, act with skill and sensitivity, and understand the societal issues arising from legal, insurance, and ethical realms.
To address this need, the University offers an online Genomic Advocacy Graduate Certificate. The program is ideal for health care providers, educators, administrators, and professionals in health services, insurance and risk management, employee benefits, criminology and criminal justice, policy analysis, and law.
Note: In addition to offering the online Genomic Advocacy Graduate Certificate Program, the University has established The Center for Genomic Advocacy, whose mission is to develop a community of advocates through interdisciplinary studies in biology, political science, business, ethics, and health. Visit the site to browse a variety of resources including reading materials and video presentations.
