Precision Health

Precision health is the future of patient care. With the strategic use of data and the careful study of the different factors affecting an individual’s health such as genetics and the environment, precision health provides us with a better understanding of each individual patient’s unique health conditions. Precision health is poised to alter how a whole range of health challenges are diagnosed, treated and prevented.


At the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, we are delivering on precision health projects that will help predict and prevent diseases, complete more accurate diagnoses and provide targeted care for each patient’s circumstances and lifestyle.
