Genomics for Medical Professionals

In 2018, Genomics Into Medicine members delivered a plenary session and a genomics workshop in each of the General Practice Continuing Medical Education (GPCME) events in Rotorua (June) and Christchurch (August).

If you attended either of these meetings, your registration will allow you to download material from these sessions/workshops here (LINK).

In March 2019, Genomics Into Medicine contributed to a genomics plenary session followed by a 5-speaker workshop/discussion in the Goodfellow Symposium for general practitioners.

If you attended this symposium, your registration will allow you to download material here (LINK).
