An Absolute Must-Have for All Health Professionals

Genetic testing has already hit the mainstream. There are genetic test panels for inherited cancer syndromes, cancer predisposition, and drug response prediction. Patients are even purchasing direct-to-consumer testing kits in grocery stores and pharmacies. Today’s healthcare provider must now have a working knowledge of genomics to properly read and interpret genetic test reports.

20 years ago it took multiple labs and millions of dollars to sequence the human genome. Now it can be done by one person with a desktop sequencer. There has been astounding progress in understanding the influence of genes on health and disease. Genomics and precision medicine now touches practically every area of medicine.

Use in Practice Immediately

Each course emphasizes practical information. Learn to perform and read genetic reports/tests. Know how to confidently and comprehensively guide patients on testing, interpretations, and much more.

This is Not Taught in Medical School

This is a one-of-a-kind program developed by leading experts and reviewed/endorsed by well-known and reputable thought leaders. This program is necessary to have current, up-to-date knowledge in this rapidly changing field.

Critical Legal/Ethical Implications

There are many issues, obligations, and challenges providers should understand. Learn the regulations, privacy, and ethical considerations all practitioners must be aware of.

Technology is Changing

Physicians and healthcare workers in the 21st century should understand genomic technologies and how they will impact their practice. Students will learn about the technology used in genetic testing and be better informed to refer to a laboratory that uses proper technology to benefit patients most.
