Course summary

The programme consists of four modules which are firmly embedded in the Clinical Genetics training pathway; utilising but restructuring training, so that it runs in parallel with full-time clinical duties and embeds academic teaching with clinical application. The course will enable you to feel proficient in the interpretation of genomic data, and confident in making clinical management decisions on the basis of your interpretation. It will also provide you with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to disseminate your expert knowledge through the wider medical workforce.

The aim of the Interpretation and Clinical Application of Genomic Data PGCert is to develop you into a self-reliant and autonomous learner, capable of independent and novel thinking, having developed the skills to enable you to apply your learning to clinical practice.

Teaching strategy

The learning objectives of this course will be achieved through a teaching scheme delivered through three key domains: knowledge, skills and attitudes. You will learn through both face-to-face/online teaching sessions and workshops, and self-directed study online and with library resources. Your knowledge base will then provide a platform to develop your skills of data interpretation in the context of clinical phenotyping. This will primarily be achieved through engagement at workshop sessions, assignments and developing your portfolio. The third domain, attitude, emphasises the need for you to develop your skills in effectively communicating complex genomic data and discussing ethical considerations such as the identification of incidental findings.
