About the Genomics Education programme

The Genomics in the NHS programme is a collection of e-learning courses developed by NHS educational teams to support and educate healthcare professionals about genomic medicine and the benefit it will bring to patient care.

With the launch of the NHS Genomics Medicine Service (GMS) in England, more healthcare professionals than ever before are likely to encounter genomics in their daily role. As it increasingly becomes a part of routine care, all healthcare professionals, not just those within specialist departments, will need some level of understanding of the impact genomics will have on the diagnosis, treatment and management of a wide variety of conditions. The e-learning courses have been developed for those directly involved in the GMS and the wider healthcare workforce.

The Genomics Education programme

Health Education England’s Genomics Education Programme (GEP) exists to deliver and advise on learning and development opportunities that prepare current and future NHS professionals to make the best use of genomics in their practice.

Launched in 2014, the GEP was created to ensure that our  NHS workforce has the knowledge, skills and experience to keep the UK at the heart of the genomics revolution in healthcare.

To find out more about the GEP and its educational opportunities for the NHS workforce, visit the GEP website.
