The 16-hour RxGenomix Training Program in Pharmacogenomics is a self-paced course designed to help working pharmacists learn about the science of pharmacogenomics and how it may be applied in their clinical practice. Course content addresses the genetic basis for individual differences in metabolizing enzymes, transporters, and other biochemicals impacting drug disposition and action that underpin the practice of precision (personalized) medicine.
The course is a combination of self-study and recorded program activity, provided entirely online. The program consists of two modules:
Testing within each program module will ensure students have a thorough knowledge of each section before advancing. The course includes both a midterm exam and a final exam, scored by percentage.
The RxGenomix Training Program in Pharmacogenomics has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) through the joint providership of CEImpact (CEI) and RxGenomix. CEI is accredited by the ACPE to provide continuing education for pharmacists.
Pre-registration is required. There is a fee of $349 to participate, which includes a digital copy of the companion textbook for the course.
