As genetics and personalized medicine become increasingly important in patient care, physicians need readily available resources to learn about the rapidly changing field and apply it to patient care.

The Genetics/Genomics Competency Center (G2C2)

Access this repository of genetics and genomics that is appropriate for physicians, genetic counselors, nurses, pharmacists and physician assistants. The educational materials are in various formats, including webinars, glossaries, fact sheets, guides and self-study activities, and many allow physicians to earn CME credit. Several genomics resources developed by the AMA are included in G2C2.
