3.0 The Genomics Era: The Future of Genetics in Medicine

This free online course prepared by St George's University on behalf of Future Learn will provide healthcare professionals with a basic grounding in genomic medicine.

"The Genomics Era" course offers general concepts, i.e. not specific to O&G, and rehearses and complements a number of the areas that are covered in Part 1 and Part 2.

It will introduce you to new genomic technologies, which are revolutionising medicine and that will, in time, provide the mainstay of patient diagnosis, treatment and disease prevention.

By the end of the course, you will understand the power and the challenges associated with these new technologies and data, enabling you to make appropriate referrals and evidence-based management decisions, and use genomic results for patient benefit, without compromising patient safety.­the-genomics-era
