New Genomics 101 courses launched

Alex Drinkall, 12 July 2019

With genomics moving into the mainstream through the new NHS Genomic Medicine Service, it has never been more vital that health professionals gain an understanding of genomics and its applications in healthcare.

To meet this need, the Genomics Education Programme (GEP) has launched the first in a new series of introductory courses that aim to give health professionals an overview of the fundamentals of genomics and its impact on patient care. Created for those with little or no previous knowledge of genomics, each of the courses will focus on a key aspect of genomics, from the underlying science to the clinical practice.

Lasting no more than 30-40 minutes each, learners will develop their understanding of genomics through written content, infographics, film, animation and interactive elements, and can test their knowledge with a final quiz.

All our 101 courses are available through the Health Education England elearning for healthcare (elfh) Hub and are free to access for NHS staff and universities in the UK. At the end of each session, there is an opportunity to demonstrate what has been learnt through a short quiz and a certificate of participation.
