Neurogenetics
The Neurogenetics Course is a flipped classroom, justintime, modular design which will be available online for genetic counseling students, medical students, residents and fellows with an interest in inherited neurologic conditions. It will encompass an introductory to neurology for beginners, including an overview of neurologic exam and localization, to provide nonneurologist trainees a foundation for understanding the differential diagnosis process in neurology. The course will cover common and exemplary neurogenetics disorders spanning the adult and pediatric neurologic subspecialties, with a core set of lectures for all learners to watch and a set of optional lectures for a minimum of 10 content hours. Talks will exemplify key genetic concepts such as triple repeat disorders and FSHD. It will also cover ethical and psychological topics as well as genetargets therapeutics. This course will prepare students so classroom and clinical experiences can begin at a more advanced level and integrate concepts from the online course.nMedical students and graduate students outside of genetic counseling should obtain permission from instructor prior to enrollment. No prerequisite for genetic counseling students, genetics or neurology residents/fellows or postdocs.
