Genetics in Primary Care (GPC)
Training Program Curriculum Materials

The materials in this section are designed to serve as a bridge between genetics and primary care.  The modules provide a series of teaching cases, developed to be representative of patients seen in primary care, while also allowing for the demonstration of genetics issues and principles. Each module cites web-sites for additional background information and articles from the medical literature, including relevant consensus and policy statements where applicable.
The material is available in PDF format.  Unable to open files?
