Medical Genetics

Educational Services

Medical genetics is one of the most rapidly advancing fields of medicine, and molecular genetics is now integral to all aspects of biomedical science. Every physician who practices in the 21st century must have an in-depth knowledge of the principles of human genetics and their application to a wide variety of clinical problems. Medical Genetics at Wake Forest School of Medicine follows the teaching guidelines set by American Society of Human Genetics and the Association of Professors of Human and Medical Genetics regarding medical genetics knowledge, skills, and behaviors that all current medical students will need during their careers as physicians.

We offer Medical Genetic lectures and workshops to:
