Welcome to week 3

Dr Catherine Millington-Sanders and Dr Debbie Hipps welcome you to week 3 of the course.

Welcome to the third and final week of this course.

We are going to discuss some of the latest genomic technologies and how they may influence primary care practice now and in the future. This week will cover two topics: Direct to Consumer (DTC) genomic tests, and the roles of genomics in infectious disease.

Week 3 has a slightly different structure from weeks 1 and 2. Rather than focusing on specific cases to illustrate principles, we will survey how new genomics technologies are relevant to primary care in general.

We look forward to hearing your views in the discussion sections, and we hope you enjoy the final week of the course.
