Series Overview

Each session includes the presentation of clinical cases followed by discussion and Q/A. The proposed format for case presentation chose to utilize the topics identified by the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG) for the certification exam content outline which complements the proposed journal club format. The cases presented will provide up to date background knowledge, current practice guidelines, and approaches to care. 

Target Audience

Division of Genetics and Metabolism staff and students including physicians, genetic counselors, nurses, nurse practitioners, clinic coordinators and genetics trainees (rotating residents/medical students, medical genetic fellows, genetic counseling students), and State Lab of Hygiene faculty and staff including cytogeneticists, molecular geneticists, lab directors and fellows.
