Uptake of genomic and precision medicine is hindered in part by an undereducated health care workforce. Last Spring, UCSF launched the first large-scale open online course on this topic for health care providers to an international audience of 13,000. 
 
The course aims to provide participants with baseline knowledge of genomics, an overview of the clinical applications of genomic medicine, the skills to evaluate the clinical validity and utility of new tests, and an appreciation of the associated ethical and social issues inherent in this field. 
 
Precision Medicine has the potential to change fundamentally how health care is practiced, but requires a health care workforce that understands the complexities of this field. As one of the instructors of the course, Jeanette McCarthy’s research on the genetic underpinnings of infectious and chronic diseases has led to over 50 publications in peer-reviewed journals.
Dr. McCarthy will highlight the key elements of a successful educational program in precision medicine at the 6th Annual Personalized & Precision Medicine Conference in San Francisco, CA on October 29 -30, 2014. In addition to discussing her experience in the online classroom setting, she will also discuss her role as Editor in Chief of Genome Magazine (www.genomemag.com). The online and print publication, launched last spring, is aimed at educating patients on the field of genomic and precision medicine. 
 
The conference will explore the ways in which Personalized & Precision Medicine is reshaping healthcare. The event brings together multiple stakeholders, including payers, molecular diagnostics companies, genome analysis/interpretation companies, clinicians, educators and many others in order to provide attendees with a holistic view of the personalized medicine landscape.
