The MPhil in Genomic Medicine is taught by the Department of Medical Genetics, in partnership with Cambridge University Hospitals, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and European Bioinformatics Institute. The course may also be taken part time for a Master of Studies degree, and elements of it may be studied for a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma via the University’s Institute of Continuing Education. Genomic technologies and information will transform practice across the clinical professions over the next decade. This MPhil in Genomic Medicine has been developed to provide a multi-disciplinary and multi-professional course in genomics that can be applied to clinical practice and medical research. The course will provide directly relevant professional training and research in the field of genomics, educating suitably-qualified applicants to prepare for the future adoption of genomic technologies and the increasing use of genomic information as part of the diagnostic and treatment pathway. Health Education England has committed funds to pay all course fees for NHS employees who wish to undertake this course, starting in 2016.
