Certificate in Evolutionary Medicine

The certificate in evolutionary medicine is intended for students planning or already pursuing careers in medicine and allied health professions, medical research, public health, or global development. It is anticipated that students may earn the certificate as part of premed preparation in the course of an undergraduate degree, in preparation for an advanced research-oriented degree, as a supplement to a degree in public health, or as continuing education for those pursuing careers in health policy or global development.
