Specific topics within genomics and how they influence health and health care

An overview introduces the six medical genomics modules: genomics, variation, microbiome, pharmacogenomics, in vitro and fetal medicine, oncology. Each module defines common terms, shows examples of data, and how healthcare is changing due to genomic insights. Each module also contains ethical, legal, and social implications of genomics in medical treatment. All modules contain five multiple choice questions to assess learning gains.

Interspersed in each module are multiple interviews with practicing healthcare workers who have first hand experience with medical genomics and how the standards of care are changing. This continuing medical education course contains information that satisfies the American Board of Medical Specialties six core competencies: Practice-based learning and improvement; Patient care and procedural skills; Systems-based practice; Medical knowledge; Interpersonal and communication skills; and Professionalism.
