About the Project
This tool provides a centralized repository for health professional education resources for use in genetics/genomics education.
Genomic applications in healthcare are increasingly relevant to the day-to-day delivery of care to patients by all health care professionals. There was a strong interest in having a centralized web resource for educators that could facilitate communication, development, and dissemination of educational resources and approaches to achieve genetic/genomic competency.
The Genetics/Genomics Competency Center is:
- Created to provide healthcare professionals with a learning management system
- Based on a core set of competencies that organizes genetic/genomic educational materials
- Streamlined to facilitate standardized curriculum development, and
- Designed to enhance efforts to develop trans-disciplinary approaches to genetics/genomics education
