Students in the M.H.Sc. in Medical Genomics have a diverse set of backgrounds. To account for the varying interests and needs, the Capstone Practicum is either performed in Clinical or Modern Medical Genomics.
Practicum in Clinical Medical Genomics
The clinical practicum in medical genomics will require clinical-stream students to integrate and apply the theoretical concepts and practical skills they learned via coursework in a clinical and/or research setting. The clinical practicum is a self-directed placement in which clinical-stream students will seek out a placement in an area related to their specific clinical interests, and work full time (>35 hr/week) with a host organization / supervisor for a 12 to 16 week period.
MMG 3007H, Session 5 (Winter 2), 78 hours, 1 FCE
Practicum in Modern Genomics
The capstone practicum in Modern Genomics will require laboratory-stream students to integrate and apply the theoretical concepts and practical skills they learned via coursework in a professional setting. During the laboratory-stream practicum students will work full-time (>35 hr per week) with a host organization / supervisor for a 12 to 16 week period, focusing on a project of significance to the practicum partner in the field of Medical Genomics.
