The care of adult patients in the 21st century will increasingly rely upon an improved understanding of the genetic basis of disease. For many clinicians the impact of this transformation of medicine is already being felt. This course is designed to allow practicing clinicians the opportunity to acquire an up‑to‑date understanding of “genetic medicine for adults” from faculty who work at the interface between the emerging science and the growing clinical applications.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Update knowledge regarding the genetic basis of adult disease.

  • Update knowledge regarding genetic testing, and the “best practice” applications for this testing in adults.

  • Update knowledge regarding non‑clinical implications of genetic testing, such as the ethical, legal, and social implications of genetic information.

  • Examine how changes in clinical practice, brought about through the integration of genetic knowledge into medicine, will translate to better patient care.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • Internal Medicine Physicians

  • Family Practitioners

  • Genetic Counselors

  • Nurse Practitioners

  • Physician Assistants

  • Registered Nurses
