Mission

The provision of health care is undergoing a genomics revolution. With massively parallel sequencing as a disruptive technology, our understanding of the genetics and genomics underlying human disease is taking an exponential leap forward. However, few physicians and scientists have been trained to understand these data, let alone take advantage of them to translate into improvements in patient care.

The postdoctoral Genomic Medicine training program draws upon the extraordinary strengths at the Perelman School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in the areas of genomics, translational medicine and bioinformatics, and will prepare trainees to embark upon careers applying Genomic Medicine to the improvement of health care through advances in diagnosis, therapeutics, and prevention.

The next deadline for applications is March 15, 2022.
