The Genomics Education Programme - Learn Online & Get Certification from Health Education England

Genomics is a rapidly expanding area of medicine, with the potential to transform the way we diagnose, manage and treat many life-threatening and inherited conditions in the future.

Developed by Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare, this high-calibre programme covers critical knowledge in this area and a range of topics, including:

  • the fundamentals of genomics and its application in healthcare
  • the practicalities of integrating related technology into mainstream care (such as the processing of biological samples for whole genome sequencing).

Some courses are suitable for healthcare professionals with little or no prior knowledge while others are aimed at specialists in genomics.

There are courses both for qualified professionals and trainees, across a variety of different healthcare professions. The content is relevant to doctors, nurses, midwives, clinical and biomedical scientists, histopathologists and public health practitioners. It has been developed and reviewed by subject-matter experts and leaders in the field within the UK – recognised as a world leader in the genomics field.

Interactive and informative

You can select learning sessions that are relevant to your areas of interest and access the content online – anywhere, at any time. Alongside the learning content, the courses include film, animation, learner exercises and quizzes to help embed learning and deepen understanding on the key themes.

You can study at home, in work or on the move – and fit the learning around your busy working life.
