Course : Adult Genomic Case Conference - November 2015
Adult Genomic Case Conference
Hosted by Baylor College of Medicine
Click Launch for details.
The ACMG Adult Genetics Special Interest Group offers quarterly case conferences that address interesting, complex and/or challenging genetic disorders seen in adults. A team of genetics providers from Baylor College of Medicine will present cases and lead a discussion on issues involved in diagnosing and managing adults with genetic disorders. Genetic tests and their results and interpretation will also be reviewed along with issues regarding counseling for at risk family members.
The overarching goal of this educational activity is to create an awareness of genetic complexities observed in adult patients. It will also encourage the adult genetics community to work together towards diagnosis and management of the patient and learn from each other’s experiences.
- Clinical geneticists; genetic counselors; pediatric, obstetric, and maternal-fetal specialists; and all medical practitioners who are providing comprehensive diagnostic, management, and counseling services for patients with, or at risk for, genetically influenced health problems.
- Laboratory directors and technicians who conduct genetic testing, researchers involved in the discovery of genetic disorders and treatments and any healthcare and public health professionals who have an in interest medical and clinical genetics and genomics.
