  • CPPD ModulePharmacogenomics and Stratified Healthcare

    Pharmacogenomics and Stratified Healthcare

    This module will provide a comprehensive overview of the analytical strategies and techniques used in pharmacogenomics and explores some of the challenges and limitations in this field. Also provides an overview of the different type of genomic biomarkers currently in use or emerging.


  • CPPD ModuleApplication of Genomics in Infectious Disease

    Application of Genomics in Infectious Disease

    This module will show how genomics can be used to provide more accurate diagnosis, predict which drugs are likely to be more effective, and monitor treatment and control of infectious disease in both individuals and populations.


  • CPPD ModuleBioinformatics, Interpretation, Statistics & Data Quality Assurance in Genomics

    Bioinformatics, Interpretation, Statistics & Data Quality Assurance in Genomics

    This module will provide the knowledge and understanding required to critically interpret existing genomic research, and develop the skills to formulate research questions. Also provides the skills to collect, analyse and interpret NHS data using a basic range of statistical and bioinformatics techniques.


  • CPPD ModuleEthical, Legal and Social Issues in Applied Genomics

    Ethical, Legal and Social Issues in Applied Genomics

    This module will provide a framework for the ethical understanding of medical genomics and gives an opportunity to explore the ethical, legal and social issues involved in genomic testing and the wider implications for the patient and their families.


  • CPPD ModuleEconomic models and human genomics

    Economic Models and Human Genomics

    This module will explore the potential economic impact of new genomic technologies on the healthcare system. Economic models will be used to predict the anticipated costs and assess the benefits to patients of new technological approaches.


  • CPPD ModuleWorkplace-based Learning in Genomic Medicine

    Workplace-based Learning in Genomic Medicine

    This module will provide the option to consider work-based examples that could explore genomic practice in an individual’s workplace, for example in the form of a case-based portfolio of study.


  • CPPD ModuleGenomic Medicine Professional & Research Skills

    Genomic Medicine Professional & Research Skills

    This module will provide the underpinning knowledge of the importance of research, development and innovation across the NHS and in healthcare science in particular. Students will learn about the importance of ethics for a project and understand the legal framework in which research with patients and/or patient samples must be undertaken.


  • CPPD ModuleGenomics and the Patient

    Genomics and the Patient

    This module will focus on development of tools to assist the healthcare professional in their future roles delivering NGS/genomic results, including “looked for, additional clinically important findings”, i.e. unanticipated genomic findings of potential clinical significance.

    This module has been developed by the provider to be offered in addition to the National Genomics Education Programme Core and Optional modules.

  • CPPD ModuleGenome-Based Therapeutics

    Genome-Based Therapeutics

    In this module students will learn how genetic information contributes to drug development. This module covers key concepts in developing gene and nucleic acid-based therapies from genomic studies including efficacy and toxicity.

    This module has been developed by the provider to be offered in addition to the National Genomics Education Programme Core and Optional modules.

  • CPPD ModuleLaboratory Skills for Genomics

    Laboratory Skills for Genomics

    Laboratory Skills for Genomics will be a hands-on wet lab course on how to develop a good experimental design, carry out a genomic analysis project, identify and critically analyse sequence variants and determine the implications for patients. Students will be in the lab for three weeks of this four week module on a full-time basis.

    This module has been developed by the provider to be offered in addition to the National Genomics Education Programme Core and Optional modules.
