Educational Opportunities

The Munroe-Meyer Institute for Genetics and Rehabilitation (MMI) offers interdisciplinary training opportunities in a variety of disciplines for both the public and professionals. Professional training for undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows provide practitioners and scientists with the latest knowledge obtained through scientific and clinical research to help students become future leaders in their fields. Our interdisciplinary education curriculum prepares students for the real-world responsibilities through leadership development, practical research and hands-on experience.

Our training program is largely supported through federal funds from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau and the Administration on Developmental Disabilities. This core support enhances MMI’s educational mission of interdisciplinary training of professionals for leadership roles in the provision of health and related services to infants, children, adolescents and adults with neuro-developmental and related disabilities and their families. Students may receive an Interdisciplinary Certificate through participation in required orientation, didactic, and practicum activities.

Please feel free to contact me or the training director of an individual department if you have questions regarding any of our training programs.
