Master of Diagnostic Genomics

Why choose this course?

Genomics is a rapidly evolving field, critical to cutting-edge health care and personalized medicine. We offer the only Master of Diagnostic Genomics in Australasia.

During this course, you will develop advanced knowledge and research skills that prepare you to meet the requirements for HGSA professional accreditation as a diagnostic genomics scientist.

You may align your study with specific career goals by selecting specialty units in molecular genetics, cytogenetics, or biochemical genetics. During the second year, you will build on this specialty or choose to complete elective units in cancer genomics, genetic epidemiology, or computational biology.

A six-month placement in an appropriate clinical or research laboratory is a key feature of the program. This placement may be completed in your current workplace or may be facilitated by QUT.

During this placement, you will complete a research dissertation. The dissertation component allows you to address a specific human genomics question through the design, implementation, analysis, interpretation, and reporting of a research project. Those completing a clinical laboratory placement will write up case studies in the dissertation format which can then be reformatted for HGSA accreditation submission.

You will be taught by leading researchers from the Genomics Research Centre, a research facility that focuses on the identification of genes involved in common human disorders and the translation of this research into new diagnostics and therapeutics.

Guest lecturers will offer insight into cross-disciplinary professions including ethics, genetic counseling, medical genetics, law, and bioinformatics.
