Because the field of pharmacogenomics is developing rapidly, it is critical that clinicians and students learn to appropriately interpret emerging data on pharmacogenomic tests and become familiar with resources applicable to their practice.
PharmGenEd™ prepares shared curriculum, open-access educational materials to train future healthcare practitioners about the various pharmacogenomic tests and their applications to clinical practice. The PharmGenEd™ materials can be used by trained healthcare practitioners to train licensed clinicians. Currently two modules are available for continuing medical education (CME) and continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits.
PharmGenEd™ uses a "Train-the-Trainer" approach to disseminate educational materials to faculty from colleges of pharmacy and schools of medicine in the U.S. The PharmGenEd™ materials can be used by trained faculty for students in the classroom. Currently nine modules are being produced and webinars are scheduled from August to the beginning of October, 2010.
We openly share our materials with others at no cost; however, all persons must complete an online registration process which includes acceptance of our End-User Licensing Agreement. PharmGenEd™ materials can be used only for non-commercial educational purposes and cannot be used for profit.
