The NHGRI Summer Workshop in Genomics is offered by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NHGRI offers this course to two distinct audiences: biology/genetics educators and nursing faculty and educators. Please see the subsections below for more information.
NHGRI will not be hosting a college biology faculty version of the Summer Workshop in Genomics in 2015. We are in an evaluation and assessment phase of this project.

This intensive, four-day course is designed to update nursing faculty and educators in related disciplines on genomic science. The course focuses on the relevancy of advances in genomics research to educators, updates on the most current understanding of the genetic/genomic basis of disease, examine the ethical, legal and social implications of genomics, and provides potential strategies for nursing education. This course is especially intended for college and university faculty seeking to update their curriculum or to develop new courses related to genomics.
Participant schools must be willing to pay for room and board plus travel costs for nurse faculty both to and from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. There is NO registration fee for attending this program.
This course is designed to update nurse faculty who are preparing the next generation of providers in this era of genomics and precision medicine. Specifics about the perceived benefit of attending the course for the faculty member and their academic institutions will be evaluated.
