Are You Prepared for
The Future of Genetics in Medicine, Clinical Genetics and Genomics for Health Practitioners
In association with the University of Pittsburgh
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. Topics include:
Basic genetic/genomic concepts
Role of genetics in disease
Pharmacogenomics (PGx) and PGx decision making
Ethical, legal, and societal implications
Communication and PGx care models
Free 0.5 CME Accredited Mini Courses
As a healthcare professional, you face substantial challenges in utilizing genetic information, namely translating genetic risk into clinical action (Christensen et al., 2016).
We at Cygenex, Inc. are committed to advancing education in the field of precision medicine.
Together, with several educational institutions and organizations including the University of Pittsburgh, AMA Ed Hub, American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) and Clinical Education from The Jackson Laboratory, we offer high-quality Continuing Medical Education (CME), Maintenance of Certification (MOC) and curated education from the AMA and many other trusted sources–all in one place. CME accredited program, geared for health professionals with advanced degrees.
Our activities are relevant to physicians and medical professionals in diverse settings, across diverse disciplines, from clinical to professional and more.
". . .The unprecedented, rapid advances in genetic and genomic knowledge, information, and technologies have made it challenging for primary care and other non-genetics health care providers to stay current. . ."
Earn CME from The AMA Ed Hub and The Jackson Laboratory (JAX), a nonprofit biomedical research institution. JAX programs provide the opportunity to practice building skills, including identifying patients appropriate for genetic evaluation, assessing the benefits and limitations of genetic and genomic tests, applying test results to patient management, and navigating ethical issues in genomic medicine.
American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) is a professional membership organization that provides education, resources and a voice for the medical genetics profession.
