  • 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 ModuleBioinformatics Analysis

    Advanced Bioinformatics

    This module introduces a deeper exploration of bioinformatics analysis of genomic data, providing a greater understanding of the different approaches to mapping and alignment of genome sequence data, programming and scripting, along with approaches for the detection and analysis of genomic changes.


  • 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.

  • CPPD ModuleEpigenetics in Human Health and Diseases

    Epigenetics in Human Health and Diseases

    The field of epigenetics provides a mechanism for the interaction of the genome with environmental exposures. This module will provide you with a solid foundation in understanding the role of the epigenome in health and disease and how the epigenome changes with age and in response to a plethora of environmental and psychosocial factors.

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

  • CPPD ModuleNext Generation Sequencing

    Applied Next Generation Sequencing

    This module will develop the trainees’ understanding of the techniques needed to follow best practice in assembling genomic data from the current version of these technologies, and will provide trainees with tools and strategies for converting these data into clinically useful information.


  • CPPD ModuleClinical bioinformatics Personalisation Medicine

    Clinical Bioinformatics & Personalisation of Medicine

    The module aims at providing the theoretical and practical knowledge that health professionals need in order to quantitatively analyse health data and develop personalised treatments for patients.


  • CPPD ModuleDisease Modelling and Genome Engineering

    Disease Modelling and Genome Engineering

    This unit will provide essential and contemporary knowledge on the importance of using model systems to investigate the functional genomics of inherited human diseases. The unit will also review genomic engineering technologies and provide a workshop for the design of CRISPR-Cas9 reagents.
