Provider Training


Overview

RxGenomix strives to be the leader in empowering healthcare providers to put the power of pharmacogenomics to work for their patients. That’s why we created the 8-hour course Pharmacogenomics: A Training for Pharmacists in collaboration with CEimpact (CEI).

The course is designed to give a solid understanding of the basics of the essential science and how to implement it in clinical practice. However, we don't stop there. RxGenomix has a wide range of training tools and works closely with all members of the care team from physicians and pharmacists to medical staff and benefit administrators to make sure they have all they need to do their part and help provide the best care possible.

Who It's For

Pharmacogenomics: A Training for Pharmacists was designed to give working pharmacists and students the opportunity to attain the competencies set out by both the ACPE Standards and the Genetics/Genomics Competency Center. The course will make it possible for pharmacists to apply a pharmacogenomic testing program to their own practice and work with the prescriber to create a truly personal medication therapy plan.
