Certificate in Public Health Genetics
Founded in 1996, the University of Michigan’s Public Health Genetics certificate program is the longest standing program of its kind in the country. The program features interdisciplinary training that provides students with knowledge and skills required to apply advances in genomic sciences to improve population health.
Students completing the program typically take four courses in areas including the genetic basis of disease, methods of genetic analysis, genetic applications, as well as ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI).
Dr. Roberts teaches two courses, HBHE 669 (Genetics, Health Behavior, & Health Education) and HBHE 715 (Ethical, Legal, & Social Issues in Genomics and Health) that satisfy certificate program requirements.
