Pharmacogenomics: From Concepts to Cases Series

The integration of diagnostics and therapeutics through pharmacogenomics is a major growth opportunity for practicing pathologists to impact personalized medicine.

Already, new molecular techniques are rapidly reshaping clinical laboratories and the diagnostics they deliver.

CAP’s newest learning resourcePharmacogenomics— is the pathologist’s opportunity to lead this emerging field and become more involved in the patient care team.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Understand and apply the principles of pharmacology and molecular testing
  • Identify opportunities to improve drug therapy via the detection of specific genetic variants
  • Evaluate and select the laboratory instruments, kits, and procedures for genomic- and molecular-level diagnostics
  • Guide clinical teams and patients in the choice of screenings and targeted treatments
  • Advise and monitor dosing, sensitivity, and patient outcomes

The Pharmacogenomics: From Concepts to Cases Series includes the following two programs:

The Pharmacogenomics Essentials Program
Four online courses combine to provide a comprehensive understanding of key genetic and pharmacologic principles that underlie this emerging science.

The Pharmacogenomics Applied Program
Through a series of six in-depth online case studies, participants review established scientific data, probe efficacy issues, and learn the latest developments across a range of diseases and therapies—from oncology to infectious disease.

Now through November 15th receive special 50% off all Pharmacogenomics program packages and individual courses.
