A challenge in the rapidly advancing era of genomic medicine is ensuring that medical professionals have the knowledge and skills needed to keep up with the technical complexity of genetic and genomic information. This type of information, which includes genetic testing specifics, screening options, personalized medicine and risk assessment may be challenging for medical professionals. In parallel, similar challenges confront genome scientists in terms of the technical complexity that exists in the rapidly evolving realm of genomic sequence analysis. To address these challenges, we offer training courses in order to build capacity in both genomic medicine/clinical diagnostics and in genome analysis and interpretation. The primary goal of these programs is to train both physicians and scientists who will serve as leaders in genomic medicine in their countries, and who will help to catalyze the introduction of genetics and genomics into the clinical care of patients as capacity of the program continues to grow over time.
This course will aim to train medical doctors and genetic counselors to address genetic and genomic issues in the clinical setting on site. This will help train course participants in the clinical decision-making that enters into selecting patients for WGS for large projects, and also in the analysi...
The goal of this course is to train clinicians and scientists who will analyze the genomic data. This course consists of training projects that will be done remotely under mentorship of iCGD faculty, to make sure that the attendees are well-equipped with required knowledge and skills.
Publication of research results is a quantitative, global measure of scientific performance of institutions. This course aims to demystify the writing process and teach the fundamentals of effective scientific writing
