ACMG Genomics in Clinical Practice Educational Series
The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics presents a free CME e-learning series: ‘Genomics in Clinical Practice’
The Genomics in Clinical Practice Educational Series was developed by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) in the US. The series aims to help physicians and other healthcare professionals who are not board-certified geneticists to understand genomics in the clinical setting.
The educational programs currently available as CME (Continuing Medical Education) e-learning webinars are:
Cystic Fibrosis Carrier Screening
Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening (NIPS)
Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis and Screening (PGD/PGS)
Understanding Your Genome: Genomics in Clinical Practice
The first three programs listed above consist of 3 hour webinars containing several modules which address different aspects of the application of genomic testing to the particular area of clinical use. In addition the ACMG has also released a 3 hour recorded program as part of the series: Understanding Your Genome: Genomics in Clinical Practice Symposium, which focuses on the full spectrum of genetic testing applications, educating physicians on the basics of clinical genome and exome sequencing while explaining the utility these tests can have for patients. All of these educational programs are presented by recognized experts in the field.
The series is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Illumina, Inc.
