Individualizing Medicine 2016: Advancing Care Through Genomics focuses on how to translate the promise of genomic medicine to your practice. Expert speakers, focused breakout sessions, case studies and a poster session provide opportunities to discover and discuss emerging topics in applied genomics.
Designed with the professional in mind, concurrent sessions offer practical genomic medicine applications in practice to in-depth discussions about the microbiome, epigenomics, pharmacogenomics, and more. Continuing education opportunities are offered.
This activity is eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 creditTM, CPEs for pharmacists, and pending CEUs for genetic counselors.
Mayo Clinic College of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Genetic Counselor CEUs: This event has been submitted to the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) for approval of Category 1 CEUs. The American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC) accepts CEUs approved by NSGC for purposes of recertification. Approval for the requested CEUs and Contact Hours is currently pending.
