Harvard Medical School has announced it will launch a 4 course certificate program called “HMX Fundamentals.”  These courses will be open to the public through a brief application, although they will differ from their edX and HarvardX platform courses in that they will cost money.  One course will cost $800, two courses will cost $1,000, and all four courses will cost $1,800.

The courses will be in physiology, immunology, biochemistry, and genetics.  Upon completion, the students will receive a PDF certificate, but the courses will not count for academic credit at Harvard.
