Course content

New genetic and genomic technologies are allowing us to develop a much more detailed understanding of the link between our genes and health. In recent years there has been international recognition that these technologies have the potential to revolutionise medicine and public health. However, to realise this vision we need people with the specialised knowledge base, understanding and skill sets for application and delivery of genomic and precision medicine in medical and clinical institutions, academic institutions and industry.

This program is linked to the Welsh Government all-Wales strategy to offer training and education in Genomic and Precision Medicine related subjects to support the development of the clinical, and clinical-associated workforce in Wales. The course will provide the opportunity to develop a fundamental understanding of the platform technologies employed in genomics analysis, utilise genomic data-analytical skills to make clinically and patient relevant interpretations of results and data and, importantly accurately and ethically report and convey findings to colleagues and patients.

The modular design and delivery formats are optimised for healthcare professionals and students, in, or entering into the clinic or clinically-associated environment, throughout Wales.
