HMX Pro Courses
Get the medical science knowledge you need to get ahead.
The HMX Pro series is designed to get busy professionals up to speed on highly relevant, cutting-edge topics in fields like genetics and immunology with targeted courses featuring Harvard Medical School’s innovative approach to online learning.
Our next course period begins January 2021 – there’s no application fee through October 1.
Topic Areas and Courses
HMX Pro Genetics
The way physicians diagnose and treat diseases is changing, thanks to a deeper understanding of the human genome and its relationship to health.
- Cancer Genomics and Precision Oncology
- Genetic Testing and Sequencing Technologies
- Genetics – Essentials
Learn key concepts in genetics, with an emphasis on genetic variation and inheritance of disease.
Understand the links between genetics and cancer, and learn how genomics knowledge is advancing precision cancer treatments.
Explore current genetic tests and their clinical applications, get an inside look at sequencing technologies and emerging tests, and learn how advances in the field can lead to improved health care.
HMX Pro Immunology
Advanced knowledge of the immune system is changing how medical professionals treat a range of diseases, with profound implications across health care.
- Novel Therapies for Chronic Inflammation, Autoimmunity, and Allergy
Understand how the immune system is being harnessed for cutting-edge cancer treatments like checkpoint blockade therapy and CAR T cell therapy.
Learn how the immune system is activated and regulated, and see how that informs the development of cutting-edge treatments for chronic inflammation and related diseases.
If you need more background in immunology before taking on an advanced course, we also offer HMX Fundamentals Immunology.
HMX Pro Pharmacology
Knowledge of key pharmacology concepts is vital for understanding how medical professionals treat patients now – and what the future of health care might bring.
- Pharmacology – Essentials
Understand the principles governing how drugs impact the body, and see how these concepts apply to the treatment and prevention of disease.

Eligibility and Prerequisites
HMX Pro courses are designed for current professionals looking to increase knowledge for work in health care, life sciences, pharma, and related industries, including those in both scientific and business roles.
HMX Pro Essentials courses cover key concepts in each topic area, useful as a streamlined introduction and/or as preparation for advanced courses. We recommend participants in these courses have a background in basic biology, chemistry, and physics.
Advanced HMX Pro courses focus on a specific topic in depth; in order to get the most from these courses, participants should have some knowledge of the underlying topic (for example, genetics or immunology). Those requiring further background may choose to take an accompanying Essentials course, or consider our HMX Fundamentals courses for a broader overview.
Note: It is not recommended to take both an Essentials and a Fundamentals course on the same topic; there is topic overlap between the corresponding Fundamentals and Essentials courses, with the latter being focused on the essential knowledge needed to succeed in the advanced HMX Pro courses.
