- LISA FISHER
Every session includes the presentation of a recent article from a peer reviewed journal which is sent to participants the preceding week. Presentation is followed by Q/A and group discussion. There is a different emphasis topic for each week. The Genetics and Metabolism Journal Club has chosen to utilize the topics identified by the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG) for the certification exam content outline for journal club topic guidance. Also, these were crossed with the current genetic specialties at UW Health to ensure all practice areas are represented. As ABMGG is the certifying and accrediting body for the and includes representation on its advisory board of all the relevant targeted learners for this journal club the identified topics are well reasoned as relevant for keeping abreast of current topics in Medical genetics and genomics. Journal Club participants were sent a Qualtrics survey on April 17, 2020 to gauge their agreement with the suggested list of topics; respondents unanimously agreed with the choices. Lastly, the journal club format remains an evidence-based practice for educating learners in the health professions.
We plan to reach developmental pediatricians (MD/DO), clinical geneticists, genetic counselors, nurses, advanced practice nurses, biochemical geneticists/fellows, molecular geneticists/fellows and cytogeneticists/fellows, researchers, and students. Learners from each of these professional areas are also expected participants.
