14th Course on Clinical Cytogenetics
This programme provides contemporary academic and practical training in genetics applied to disease and healthcare. The core training aspect of this programme is a 25 week full-time research project.
The programme is suitable for science graduates who have a basic understanding of human genetics and molecular biology and graduates will be well qualified for a career in clinical or laboratory based genetic medicine (including biotech and industrial R&D).
For medical students this programme can be completed during undergraduate training or after qualification and will provide invaluable experience for those wishing to pursue a career in genetics or academic medicine.
Graduates from this programme will be well placed for pursuing further research through a PhD.
Free online courses in genetics produced by health professionals in Europe for health professionals in Europe.
As part of the Gen-Equip project, we have produced a series of online courses based on patient cases.
They are suitable for medical doctors, nurses and midwives:
- Working in Primary Care (general or family practice)
- Working Secondary care (e.g. oncology, cardiac care, obstetrics, pardiatrics)
- Who have begun training in genetics (genetic counsellors, genetic nurses, trainee geneticists)
- As additional course material for undergraduate or postgraduate students in the health professions.
There are cases to cover:
- Familial cancers
