The Graduate Certificate in Nanomedicine is designed for scientists, engineers, and physicians to develop competency and practical skills in the application of nanotechnology to problems in medicine.  This program is appropriate for those working in, or seeking careers in biotechnology, pharmaceutical, biomedical, or clinical fields. Program participants receive advanced training in the fundamental and applied aspects of nanomedicine, as well as nanomedicine commercialization from bench to bedside. The curriculum includes a variety of activities for scientific and professional development, including lectures, case studies, journal readings, term projects, and close interactions with distinguished faculty and experts drawn from academia, hospitals, industry, and government.

The Certificate consists of five nanomedicine (NNMD) courses, totaling 12 SH credits. This is a part-time, 12-credit graduate program that can be completed in as little as 2 semesters.
