Resource Folders for Integrating Genomics into Medical Education

Created by the Genomics Interest Group (GIG) for the purpose of enhancing the Integration of Genomics into Medical Curricula.  In additions, these folders are designed to serve as introductory educational resource for scientists, graduate & medical students, clinicians, and residents & fellows.

This folder contains resources selected to be of value specifically for faculty seeking to integrate the new information of genetics & genomics into their individual medical school courses or across their medical school's curriculum.  The resources were selected from the published literature and reviewed websites for their value in assisting faculty (and others) in self-study to update their understanding of this information and/or for the clarity of their tables and figures for illustrating the application of genomics to modern medicine and clinical practice.

Overall organization - Articles and websites are included in the following categories; these are accessed through links in the left panel or the table below. The number in parentheses indicates that there are multiple subfolders in the specified category.  Some of the subfolders contain a few selected resource citations and have a link to a "Detailed" folder containing additional resources.  The "Biochemistry" and the "Pharmacology" folders contain subfolders organized along the lines of the course topic sequence typical of their subject matter.
