Genetics is a rapidly advancing science and the major strides that medicine will accomplish
in the present century will be made possible by understanding the human genome. The pace of the
progress is extremely rapid. If the benefits of this progress are to reach the common man the
medical fraternity has to keep abreast of the newly emerging technology.
The subject of Medical Genetics is not given due prominence in the medical curricula. To
fill this lacuna the Department of Genetics, Immunology and Biochemistry, Maharashtra University
of Health Sciences is starting a certificate course in Medical Genetics. It is envisaged that this
course will arm the doctors and the technical people involved in care of patients and families with
genetic disorders with the knowledge in genetics from basic concepts to the exciting future
prospects like gene therapy.
