Description: Understanding genomic medicine can be very complicated, it can be even more complicated when tasked with a research question. It is no mystery to unravel why patrons, researchers, and even clinicians are also confused. This course is a great introduction to genomic medicine for the beginner and provides help in understanding the latest trends and research in genomic medicine. Librarians will leave confident with new ideas on how to use opportunities in genomic medicine to create a new research service or improve existing research services in a variety of library settings.

Experience Level: Beginning
Continuing Education Experience: None
CE Contact Hours: 2 or 4
Professional Competencies: Health Sciences Information Services, Research + Analysis and Interpretation
