Prenatal Genetics Course

This course, now in its third year, will help MFMs, fellows, OBGYN generalists, and genetic counselors better understand when to order cell free DNA screening with expanded panels, expanded carrier screening, chromosomal microarray, targeted gene panels, or exome sequencing.  What are the benefits of each test?  For whom should these tests be ordered? Come to Chicago and learn from the nation's leading experts in prenatal genetics.
