NHGRI Short Course 2016
NHGRI Short Course in Genomics: Nurse, Physician Assistant and Faculty Track
The NHGRI Short Course in Genomics: Nurse, Physician Assistant and Faculty Track, held on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus in Bethesda, Maryland, offers participants the opportunity to learn best practices from leaders in genomics education for health professionals. This year, the course is targeted to nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and the faculty who educate these health professionals in genomics.
In addition to lectures and panel discussions, the course includes interactive sessions with course participants and presenters. On the third day, the class separates into two groups: the educator group will review existing curricula for ways to incorporate genomic content; the clinician group will learn about successful models in which genomics/genetics have been integrated into practice. Tours of the NIH Clinical Center will also be offered.
The 2016 NHGRI Short Course in Genomics: Nurse, Physician Assistant and Faculty Track, is scheduled for August 1-3, 2016.
Applications for potential participants are now available on the website: https://www.genome.gov/shortcourse/healthprofessionals/ . The flyer with more information is also available at this link. Application submission deadline is May 20, 2016.
