The Molecular Medicine Graduate Certificate Program provides training that integrates fundamental principles of biology with human health and disease; that provides exposure to the concepts and practice of medicine; and that emphasizes the importance of and opportunities for translational research. A distinguishing feature of this program is dual mentorship of trainees by a basic scientist and a clinical/translational mentor.
PhD students in the Departments of Biochemistry, Bioengineering, Genome Sciences, Immunology, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Physiology & Biophysics, and in the interdisciplinary Neurosciences and Molecular & Cellular Biology (MCB) Programs are eligible to participate in the Molecular Medicine Graduate Certificate Program. To receive a Graduate Certificate in Molecular Medicine, PhD students must fulfill requirements of the home department or interdisciplinary program, and also fulfill specific requirements of the Molecular Medicine Certificate Program.
Molecular Medicine Certificate Training was approved by the UW Board of Regents in November, 2005. Since inception of this program, nearly 50 students have obtained a Graduate Certificate in Molecular Medicine along with the PhD degree. Over 20 students are currently enrolled in the Certificate Program.
