European Society of Human Genetics Course, 25 – 27th April 2022
The first European Society of Human Genetics course on: Precision Medicine: A Focus on Clinical Utility
will take place from 25 – 27th April 2022. The course will be a virtual event this year and will be hosted online from the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin.
In 2022, clinicians and scientists can make accurate diagnoses and provide targeted therapies to their patients according to well-defined, biologically-informed disease subtypes, accounting for individual differences in genetic make-up, behaviours, cultures, lifestyles and the environment.
Recent advances in science and technology, particularly in the field of genomics, has led to an explosion of new information on what underlies health and what constitutes disease and has ushered in this new era of medicine.
However the appropriate education to allow for the implementation of these medical advances in an effective, efficient and safe way remains inadequate.
This new ESHG course (3 day/ 9 themed sessions) has been developed to help bridge this educational gap.
The primary aim of this course is to help train the next generation of clinicians and scientists to be able to translate precision medicine into effective clinical benefit.
70 ESHG sponsored scholarships are available for early career scientists and clinicians to attend this course. Preference will be given to researchers/clinicians from low or middle income countries (https://2021.eshg.org/myconference/registration-2/list-of-underprivileged- countries) and ESHG members, although scholarships are not limited to these groups.
To apply for a scholarship, simply indicate you wish to be considered for one during registration and upload a short letter of motivation (200 words).
The deadline for application for a scholarship is March 20th.
Academic / Clinical/ Patient group Up to March 20th 100 euro
From March 21st 200 euro
Non-academic/-clinical/-patient group Up to March 20th 300 euro
From March 21st 500 euro
An application has been made to the UEMS EACCME® for CME accreditation of this event
