Looking at a range of complex issues surrounding genomic medicine using clinical scenarios and a problem-based learning approach.
Genomic medicine is an emerging field of relevance to healthcare and clinical practice. Using genomic information to guide diagnostic and treatment decisions has the ability to transform the way medicine is practiced. Developing a competent workforce will be crucial to realising the promise of genomic medicine. This paper has been designed for health professionals and researchers who want to develop their knowledge and skills in this area.
