    As a Consultant or Trainee in Clinical Genetics, are you feeling confident about genomics, variant interpretation, ACMG variant classification and missense constraint? If brushing up on these and similar topics would lift your clinical practice and prepare you for using WGS data in your clinical practice, why not come along to the Fundamentals of Clinical Genomics course at Hinxton in Jan 2018.

    This course is specifically designed to up skill Consultants and introduce Specialist Trainees to the practice of Clinical Genomics. It will include two Decipher workshops - one on variant interpretation and another on the ACMG and Summative assessment tools in Decipher that will give you an opportunity to learn directly from the Decipher development team.
    We look forward to seeing you at Hinxton in January.
