The exciting era of precision medicine and health has arrived.
In 2022, clinicians and scientists can make accurate diagnoses and provide targeted therapies to their patients according to well-defined, biologically-informed disease subtypes, accounting for individual differences in genetic make-up, behaviours, cultures, lifestyles and the environment.
Recent advances in science and technology, particularly in the field of genomics, has led to an explosion of new information on what underlies health and what constitutes disease and has ushered in this new era of medicine.
However the appropriate education to allow for the implementation of these medical advances in an effective, efficient and safe way remains inadequate.
This new ESHG course (3 day/ 9 themed sessions) has been developed to help bridge this educational gap.
The primary aim of this course is to help train the next generation of clinicians and scientists to be able to translate precision medicine into effective clinical benefit.
This course will:
- focus on the clinical utility of precision medicine
- equip the attendee with knowledge around the various aspects of precision medicine including:
- current and upcoming applications (germline & somatic)
- new technologies
- new frontiers
FOR WHOM IS THIS COURSE SUITABLE?
The course is suitable for:
- clinicians and other healthcare professionals (those who have completed their training or those who are currently in training)
- Scientists/academics at all levels
- Patients/ Patient Support Groups interested in learning about the appliance of precision medicine
- Pharma/ Industry representatives
HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE DELIVERED?
Over the 3 days, 40+ world class educators/experts in the field of precision medicine, from over 20 clinical and academic institutions, will provide an up-to-date practical knowledge of the area and equip the attendees with the basic principles (current and future) of precision medicine in a way so they can be applied to any area of medical practice/ interest.
The course has been structured under 9 themes to allow the delegate to prioritise the most appropriate educational sessions to attend during the live course.
IS THERE AN ON-DEMAND REVIEW OPTION?
An on-demand option to review all the course content for up to 3 months after the course will be available for those who register.
70 ESHG sponsored scholarships are available for early career scientists and clinicians to attend this course. Preference will be given to researchers/clinicians from low or middle income countries (https://2021.eshg.org/myconference/registration-2/list-of-underprivileged- countries) and ESHG members, although scholarships are not limited to these groups.
To apply for a scholarship, simply indicate you wish to be considered for one during registration and upload a short letter of motivation (200 words).
The deadline for application for a scholarship is March 20th.
Academic / Clinical/ Patient group Up to March 20th 100 euro
From March 21st 200 euro
Non-academic/-clinical/-patient group Up to March 20th 300 euro
From March 21st 500 euro
The 1st European Society of Human Genetics Course on: Precision Medicine: A Focus on Clinical Utility, Dublin, Ireland, 25/04/2022-27/04/2022 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 18 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
