Genomics & Your Practice
Learn more about genomics and its increasing relevance to clinical practice and earn continuing education credits at Genomics & Your Practice. This series highlights intersections between genomics and medicine across multiple specialties using real-world case scenarios to frame discussion.
Participants in the Genomics & Your Practice foundational course learn how to
- assess case-based scenarios involving a spectrum of clinical genomics
- understand applications for diagnostic, treatment, ethical, legal and social implications
- apply genetic terminology and basic concepts in the clinical care setting
- create a network of healthcare providers interested and engaged in genomics-driven medicine
- integrate existing genomics resources relevant to clinical practice.
Healthcare providers who take the course are able to receive continuing education credits. In addition to repeat offerings of the introductory course, future courses – offered quarterly – will delve deeper into genomics in specialty areas.
