Practical Genomics for Oncologists

WORKSHOP

Saturday, 8 October

  • 3 hour workshop + 2 hours of online learning
  • Online
  • For medical oncologists

Learn about the use of genomic testing in oncology through self-directed online learning followed by a case-based interactive workshop. The online material and workshop will cover genomic variants (somatic) contributing to cancer, genomic testing for adult cancers, how to interpret genomic test reports and actionability.

Genomics in the Clinic – Warrnambool

WORKSHOP

Wednesday, 9 November

  • 2 hours
  • In-person
  • For paediatricians and adult physicians in Warrnambool, Hamilton and Portland

Learn about the use of genomic testing in your practice, working through clinical cases with experts. This workshop will cover when to use genomic tests, eligibility for Medicare-funded tests, how to interpret test reports, and potential implications for patient management.

Genomics in the Clinic – Shepparton

WORKSHOP

Tuesday, 15 November

  • 1.5 hours
  • In-person
  • For paediatricians in Shepparton

Learn about the use of genomic testing in your practice, working through clinical cases with experts. This workshop will cover when to use genomic tests, eligibility for Medicare-funded tests, how to interpret test reports, and potential implications for patient management.

Introduction to Clinical Variant Interpretation

WORKSHOP SERIES (FULL)

August-September

  • 1 day session + 12 hours pre-reading per workshop
  • In-person + online interactive pre-reading
  • For medical scientists who intend to move, or have recently moved, into diagnostic testing for rare germline disorders

This workshop series provides a solid understanding of variant interpretation principles and the opportunity to work through real-world cases with experts.

The series features three in-person all-day workshops which can be taken in sequence or stand-alone.

The workshops are only open to those employed by Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance member organisations and are almost full.

The 2022 introductory workshops are now FULL. We will run the series again in early 2023Click here to be notified of future Melbourne Genomics education events.

Advanced Clinical Variant Interpretation

COURSE

November

  • 2 days of workshops working through complex cases + self-directed learning
  • In-person + online interactive pre-reading
  • For medical scientists who want to extend their knowledge and skills in diagnostic testing for rare germline disorders

Learn directly from experts in the field!

This course provides an opportunity for those already practising variant interpretation to refresh their understanding of key principles and processes before applying and extending their knowledge and skills by working through more complex cases.

Education events for data scientists

Genomic testing generates a very large amount of DNA data, which requires the expertise of especially trained data scientists to analyse, interpret and securely store individuals’ genomic information.

We’ll be running future education sessions for data science professionals. Sign up to our email list to hear about it first.
