At the end of this session, physicians should be able to:
Target Audience: This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of both physicians who have had limited experience with genetics and want to learn more about integrating genetics into their clinical practice, and for physicians who are experienced in genetics and are interested in newer genetic technologies and more effectively using genetics in patient care. Primary care physicians will benefit greatly from this activity since they are often the first to determine when patients require genetic services.
Statement of Competency: This activity is designed to address the following ABMS/ACGME competencies: patient care, medical knowledge, and interpersonal and communication skills, and interdisciplinary teamwork. Accreditation Statement: This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of the American Medical Association and NCHPEG. The American Medical Association is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Credit Designation Statement: The American Medical Association designates this live activity for a maximum of 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
