Introduction to Genomic Medicine for Practitioners: Pre-conference Course
About the course
Introduction to Genomic Medicine for Practitioners is a pre-conference course that will be held Sunday, Oct. 5, from 12:30 to 5 p.m. at Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minn.
Purchase DVD and syllabus of Omics 101: A Primer for Clinical Practice — the pre-conference course from the 2013 Individualizing Medicine conference. CME credit available following successful completion of online assessment modules.
This course introduces you to principles of genomics and pharmacogenomics using a case-based approach. Fundamental principles and issues of laboratory practice, such as DNA sequencing and interpretation, are discussed in the context of the ethics and practical considerations of the state of the science.
You can register for this course and the Individualizing Medicine Conference at the same time, but separate registration fees apply. Learn more about the course.
*Mayo Clinic College of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
