Genomic Competencies

Experts from the disciplines listed below have tagged this resource as fulfulling genomic competencies.

Pharmacist

  • Basic Genetic Concepts
    • B1:   To demonstrate an understanding of the basic genetic/genomic concepts and nomenclature
  • Genetics and Disease
    • G1:   To understand the role of genetic factors in maintaining health and preventing disease
    • G2:   To assess the difference between clinical diagnosis of disease and identification of genetic predisposition to disease (genetic variation is not strictly correlated with disease manifestation)
    • G3:   To appreciate that pharmacogenomic testing may also reveal certain genetic disease predispositions (e.g. the Apo E4 polymorphism)
