St George's, University of London program

Genomics in Healthcare

Gain insight into the role of genomic technologies across the breadth of medicine, with this flexible program of online courses from St George’s, University of London.

Genomics in Healthcare

Study genomics at postgraduate level, for CPD or as a gateway to further study

The Genomics in Healthcare program from St George’s, University of London explores the range of techniques used to interrogate the human genome.

Over three online courses, you will explore a variety of clinical scenarios, to gain a deep insight into the potential of genomics in healthcare, and the clinical applications of molecular genetic techniques and next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies.

Designed for scientists and healthcare professionals at a postgraduate level, the courses in this program are accessible for free on desktop, tablet or mobile and delivered in bite-sized chunks.

They provide a flexible way to improve your clinical practice and demonstrate your continuing professional development (CPD) as a clinician.

The two postgraduate level Genomic Technologies in Clinical Diagnostics courses will provide you with the teaching component of module 1 of the PGCert in Interpretation and Clinical Application of Genomic Data (PGCert ICAG) from St George’s.

If you complete both courses on FutureLearn and buy a Certificate of Achievement for each, you will have completed the teaching component of the module, should you apply to study at St George's.

And if you complete all three courses and buy a Certificate of Achievement for each, you will also earn a FutureLearn Award as proof of completing the program of study.

Academic credential program

When you complete all courses, upgrade and earn a Certificate of Achievement for each, you will receive a FutureLearn Award as proof of completing the program of study and deeper subject knowledge.

Learn with experts in clinical genetics and education

The Genomics in Healthcare program draws on the experience of experts in clinical genetics and education at St George’s, University of London, St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the Genomics Education Programme from Health Education England.

As clinical geneticists who undertake diagnosis and care of patients with genetic conditions on a regular basis, the program educators are able to explain the relevance of novel technologies to clinical practice both now and in the future.
