Patients and Lectures

Earn up to 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™


Expert clinician Edward McCabe, MD, PhD, guides you through a Virtual Mini-Fellowship designed to help the generalist clinician learn about this increasingly important and complex topic. In an immersive graphical environment, you can travel the halls of a "Virtual Clinic" to interact with realistic (and challenging) simulated patients, attend case discussions, view genetic counselors working with the patients you see, and hear the experiences of actual patients. You can also attend lectures and access other key web resources.

The American Medical Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education to physicians.

The American Medical Association designates this enduring material for a maximum of 12.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

"The Genetics in Clinical Practice: A Team Approach training program has been the gold standard of interactive multimedia programs for nearly a decade. I found this mini-fellowship to be easy to use, efficient and highly informative. I recommend it to all primary care physicians (like me) who are making their way in the rapidly emerging genomic era of medicine."

Here is what some of our users are saying...

"Interactive, good realistic presentations, real patients and real MDs."

"I really enjoyed the office visits; the patients seemed real, and I liked their frank discussions about their concerns. I also liked the question/answer sessions; this provided a useful opportunity to think a little bit more about the issues involved with genetic testing in general and with the specific diseases/conditions presented. It was much more engaging and fun than I was expecting."

"Packed in both the science and art of medicine teaching in a very effective program."
