Standard clinical care is shifting its focus towards precision medicine, where the choice for treatment relies on the specific physiological and genetic characteristics of a given patient. This course covers current clinical practices within precision medicine including application of genomics and proteomics in the clinic. In addition, you study patient cases and address diagnoses and individualized treatments.

Note: Please be aware that the course does not provide regular medical training corresponding to that of medical students and does not include shadowing of doctors or physical examination of patients.
