Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the University of Chicago’s Institute for Population and Precision Health. We are excited for you to join our inaugural class in the Master of Science in Precision Health (MsPH). The MsPH is the first program of its kind, applying emerging technologies and research methodologies in precision medicine in the context of a broader population health perspective to improve disease prevention and health promotion while also addressing health disparities. As a member of this class, you will be at the forefront of precision medicine and population health, preparing to tackle the most challenging biological, behavioral, and economic problems.

As a student in the Precision Health program, you will learn from leading precision medicine experts in the Institute for Population and Precision Health, an interdisciplinary center that brings together experts from across the University and integrates developments in genomics, bioinformatics, data science, diagnostics and therapeutics within the context of a broader population health perspective to improve disease prevention, early diagnosis, and better outcomes while promoting health equities. As a community of scholars, clinicians, teachers, researchers, students, and fellows, we actively seek to push the boundaries of biological and medical discovery. Leveraging the broader institutional strengths of the University of Chicago and University of Chicago Medicine, we are committed to the highest level of research, education and patient care.

We hope that your participation in the program will be an enriching and rigorous educational experience, and prepare you for a successful career in the future of medicine and healthcare.
