Introduction to Genomics

Watch/Listen to the Genomics course introduction.

Purpose and Description

The purpose of this four-part course is to educate obstetrician-gynecologists and allied health care professionals about genetics and genomics as they relate to preconception/prenatal care and evaluation of women at increased risk for hereditary cancer syndromes. This mixed-media curriculum will enhance physicians’ knowledge and application of genomic technologies in the fields of reproductive healthcare.

Objectives

By the end of this educational series, the learner should be able to:

  • Solicit a family history to identify appropriate genetic screening.

  • Counsel a preconception/prenatal patient on new carrier screening and aneuploidy screening options, and the implications of positive and negative test result

  • Discuss the pros and cons of new genetic test options for patients seeking prenatal diagnostic testing

  • Recognize and counsel patients about hereditary cancer syndromes of relevance to women’s health and develop an evidence-based testing strategy

Why Should I Take This Course? 

This course is:

  • An interactive and clinically-oriented session focusing on new genetic technologies of relevance to women’s health

  • Developed and presented by clinicians for clinicians
