The Hayward Genetics Center at Tulane University offers a 1-year, post-baccalaureate Master in Medical Genetics and Genomics.



The Medical Genetics and Genomics program offered by Tulane University gives graduates an in-depth understanding of the rapidly advancing field of clinical human genetics. It is designed to prepare qualified individuals for careers in the health sciences, and to provide an educational experience that will enhance the opportunity of being admitted into a postgraduate professional school such as medical school or PhD programs.

  • Most of our students are pre-med, and while it varies from year to year, we estimate that over 90% of our graduates who apply to medical school or osteopathy school have been accepted in subsequent years.
  • In addition to medical school, graduates from our program have also gone on to other careers including dental school, PhD programs, genetic counseling masters programs, and working with biomedical technology companies.
  • The curriculum includes courses that cover the same material as the Tulane Medical School’s first year Genetics course and first year Medical Biochemistry course.
  • We offer clinical shadowing opportunities in the Tulane Genetics clinics
