Short Course in Genomics

Nurse, Physician Assistant and Faculty Track

This track offers participants the opportunity to learn best practices from leaders in genomics education and practice for health professionals. The course is targeted to nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and the faculty who educate these health professionals in genomics.

Overview

In addition to lectures and panel discussions, the course includes interactive sessions with course participants and presenters. After two days of lectures and hands-on activities, the class separates into two groups: the educator group will review existing curricula for ways to incorporate genomic content; the provider group will learn about successful models in which genetics/genomics have been integrated into practice. Tours of the NIH Clinical Center will also be offered.

The course is not currently offered. However, information and materials about previous courses are available below.
