The IU School of Medicine Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics prepares trainees for successful careers in biomedical genetic research—in clinical medicine, industry and academics—through courses for medical students, MS and PhD graduate programs as well as residency and fellowship training of post-graduates.
The mission of the Medical and Molecular Genetics educational programs is to improve human health through research in genetics and apply the knowledge gained to further training and clinical service. This mission facilitates an understanding of the bench to bedside approach to medical science. Since the late 1960s, the department has trained more than 300 graduate students and fellows.
The department offers a PhD degree in Medical and Molecular Genetics, a Master of Science degree in Medical and Molecular Genetics, and a Master of Science degree with an emphasis in genetic counseling.
