Pharmacogenomics Fundamentals for Today's Clinicians - Online
Mayo Clinic and the Center for Individualized Medicine is working to close the gap between education and application of pharmacogenomics; made more prevalent by the increased access and affordability of genetic and pharmacogenomics test. This online content has been created to provide multidisciplinary education to those in a busy practice and not able to make it to one of the live CME courses offered.
Pharmacogenomics (PGx), the study of how one’s genes may affect an individual’s response to medication, is an emerging field within patient care. This course aims to prepare today’s clinician with the fundamentals of pharmacogenomics, including real-life case examples. Expert faculty provide the education needed to implement PGx into clinical practice.

Course includes the following:
Pharmacogenomics from Bench to Bedside
Dr. Richard Weinshilboum, with over 40 years of research and clinical experience, sets the stage for this pharmacogenomics (PGx) course. He presents key, foundational principles, examples of early and current research, testing options and the trajectory of PGx in practice.
Pharmacogenomics (PGx) at the bedside is more than understanding drug-gene interactions. Dr. Zeuli explains foundational PGx concepts and how they apply to patient care.
