Precision Medicine Education for Providers
As a healthcare professional, you face substantial challenges in utilizing genetic information, namely translating genetic risk into clinical action (Christensen et al., 2016).
That is why we are committed to advancing education in the field of precision medicine through free webinars and partnerships with organizations providing education for clinicians.
CME Accredited Program
In partnership with the University of Pittsburgh, we offer the following CME accredited program: The Future of Genetics in Medicine, Clinical Genetics and Genomics for Health Practitioners
Genetic Testing Webinars
We offer free webinars on genetic testing, pharmacogenomics, and more, with more offerings added monthly.
About the Course
Together with the University of Pittsburgh, we offer a CME accredited program, geared for health professionals with advanced degrees. Welcome to Course P2021: Cygenex Pharmacogenomics (PGx)
Precision medicine promises the right drug for the right patient the first time. Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is one way to achieve this and is already being implemented in clinical practice.
This course prepares practitioners to meet the challenge of using pharmacogenomics (PGx) and precision medicine to personalize treatment for patients.
What You Will Learn
Working with real data, you will learn about pharmacogenomics, clinical decision making, and implementation strategies.
Basic genetic/genomic concepts
Role of genetics in disease
Pharmacogenomics (PGx) and PGx decision making
Ethical, legal, and societal implications
