Prenatal Genetics Course


This innovative course on reproductive genomics will cover three main topics: exome/genome sequencing, cfDNA, and carrier screening. The course will utilize five learning opportunities for each topic, including lectures, debates, TED talks, journal clubs, and case presentations.

The morning and afternoon sessions will end with a Jeopardy quiz show activity to review the topics. This program aims to keep the participants engaged through smaller segments and variable ways of receiving information.

By the end of the course, participants will have gained a comprehensive understanding of the three main topics and will have had the opportunity to engage in critical analysis, debate, and interactive games.
