Genomics in Healthcare Program

Description

Study genomics at postgraduate level, for CPD or as a gateway to further study
The Genomics in Healthcare program from St George’s, University of London explores the range of techniques used to interrogate the human genome.

Over three online courses, you will explore a variety of clinical scenarios, to gain a deep insight into the potential of genomics in healthcare, and the clinical applications of molecular genetic techniques and next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies.

Designed for scientists and healthcare professionals at a postgraduate level, the courses in this program are accessible for free on desktop, tablet or mobile and delivered in bite-sized chunks.

They provide a flexible way to improve your clinical practice and demonstrate your continuing professional development (CPD) as a clinician.

The two postgraduate level Genomic Technologies in Clinical Diagnostics courses will provide you with the teaching component of module 1 of the PGCert in Interpretation and Clinical Application of Genomic Data (PGCert ICAG) from St George’s.

If you complete both courses on FutureLearn and buy a Certificate of Achievement for each, you will have completed the teaching component of the module, should you apply to study at St George’s.

And if you complete all three courses and buy a Certificate of Achievement for each, you will also earn a FutureLearn Award as proof of completing the program of study.
