Education

Stanford Center for Undiagnosed Diseases Network Resources

The faculty and staff of the Center for Undiagnosed Diseases facilitates education of trainees in a number of venues:

  • Internal Medicine residents gain exposure to the CUD through the highly-ranked Genomic Medicine and Undiagnosed Diseases residency rotation directed by Matthew Wheeler.
  • Genetic Counseling master’s students are trained through the Undiagnosed Diseases Genetic Counseling Rotation directed by Jennefer Kohler.
  • Medical, graduate, and advanced undergraduate students can enroll in the fall-quarter course “Diagnostic Odysseys in Medicine” (MED 244) to learn about techniques and technologies at the forefront of medicine, directed by Jason Hom.
  • Students looking for a more hands-on elective can enroll in the “Workshop to End Diagnostic Odysseys” (MED 239) directed by Matthew Wheeler, to learn and apply case-solving techniques to real-world undiagnosed cases.
