Human Genetics MS
College description: The goal of this course is to teach the basics of genetics so that students who successfully complete the course will be qualified to take Epid 515 and some of the other courses associated with the Certificate in Public Health Genetics.
The application deadline for International students is March 15th; April 1st for domestic applicants.
Prerequisites and Admission Requirements:
1. Undergraduate degree: B.S. or B.A. Most students major in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, physics mathematics or related field, although this is not an absolute requirement
2. Transcripts documenting coursework in biology, biochemistry, statistics, and genetics
3. TOEFL scores for applicants from non-English speaking countries
4. Three letters of recommendation, at least one from faculty of a science course
5. Academic Statement of Purpose and Personal Statement
6. Resume or CV
Successful applicants for the M.S. Degree Program in Human Genetics will generally have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and competitive standardized test scores, but admission decisions will be based on the total package of GPA, GRE, or MCAT scores, research and other relevant experience, statement of purpose and personal statement.
GRE and MCAT examinations will not be required.
Human Medical Genetics and Genomics Graduate Program
College description: For the second year, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health, has selected the top tier of early career researchers with its 2020 Genomic Innovator Awards. This year, the award went to 12 researchers around the U.S., with two from the University of Colorado Denver. Audrey Hendricks, PhD, and Katrina Claw, PhD, received over $1.5 million respectively over the next five years to pursue their research. Unlike traditional grants, the Genomic Innovator Awards invests in the researchers themselves, instead of a particular research project.
The recruitment, retention, and support of students from underrepresented backgrounds is central to the Graduate School's mission. The university strive to develop and promote efforts to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion campus-wide. Application fee waivers are offered to eligible applicants.
Although there are no formal undergraduate course requirements, students with a solid undergraduate foundation in mathematics and biological and chemical sciences have performed best in the Program. It is suggested that applicants have completed courses in biology, chemistry (general and organic), physics, genetics, calculus, and statistics before entering the Program.
The GRE General Test and Subject Test are not required for application to HMGGP but will be considered if submitted.
Applications will open on SEPTEMBER 1st and deadline is DECEMBER 1st.
A $50.00 domestic and $75.00 international non-refundable application fee. No application will be processed unless this fee is paid.
One (1) official transcript of all academic work completed to date. To be considered "official", the transcripts must come from the issuing institution directly to the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus graduate program.
Three (3) letters of recommendation.
TOEFL or IELTS scores and financial support verification (international students only).

Masters in Medical Genetics Genomics
The university require all of the application materials to be submitted before an admissions decision is made. If you are currently taking classes or planning on taking classes after you apply, be sure to send us updated transcripts as they become available.
Upon acceptance, a $500 deposit is required to hold your spot. This will be applied to your tuition.
The is no mimimum requirement for GPA, MCAT, or GRE. But the university rarely accept students with a GPA below a 3.0, MCAT below a 500, or GRE below 300.

Kayne Investment Management Fellowship
College description: Sign in features are only available for UCLA graduate students at this time.
The application deadline is December 1.
GRE General and Subject test scores are optional.
Applicants are expected to hold a bachelor's degree, with preparation in physics, biology and chemistry, and exposure through upper division courses in specific areas that may include: genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, developmental biology, microbiology, virology, physiology, and immunology. Because of the high mathematical content of some areas of human genetics, advanced courses in mathematics may be substituted for biologically oriented courses. More advanced degrees (M.S., M.D. or equivalent) are also acceptable.

Ph.D. in Human Genetics
College description: Human Genetics, Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) with a concentration in quantitative human genetics. Biostatistics, Master of Science (M.S.) with a concentration in clinical research and biostatistics. Biostatistics, Master of Science (M.S.) with a concentration in genomic biostatistics. Human Genetics, Master of Science (M.S.) with a concentration in genomic data science.
Applicants to the Ph.D. program must have earned a baccalaureate (i.e. bachelor’s) degree (or its equivalent) in the biological, chemical or related sciences by the time of enrollment. Successful applicants will have completed undergraduate courses in biology, chemistry through organic chemistry, genetics and mathematics through calculus. Typically, we target applicants with previous grade point averages of at least 3.3 and substantial research experience. International applicants must have demonstrated an acceptable level of English proficiency by achieving a minimum score of 100 on the TOEFL or 6.5 on the IELTS. We take a holistic approach when evaluating applications, though, and strength in one or more aspects of an application can compensate for another area that is not as strong.
Applications are typically accepted for enrollment in the fall semester only, although exceptions for enrollment at other times can be made in special circumstances.
A completed application contains the on-line application, official transcripts, three letters of recommendation and a personal statement. Your letters of recommendation should comment on your suitability for graduate training and on your research or other relevant experience. Your personal statement should describe in any order (i) your research or other experience, (ii) why you are interested in Ph.D. training, (iii) your main research interests, (iv) a short list of prospective faculty mentors, (v) any career plans that you have, and (vi) any other information that will help us evaluate you as a prospective Ph.D. trainee. If you are supported by a governmental or other scholarship, please provide a copy of the financial guarantee or award letter. International applicants must provide TOEFL or IELTS scores.
