Course Directors SIG

The Medical School Genetics Course Directors Special Interest Group (CD SIG) is comprised of faculty involved in undergraduate and graduate medical education focused on genetics.  This includes course/block/thread leadership and participating faculty. This is an active group which meets regularly and is working on several projects including the update of the Medical School Genetic curriculum guidelines, and  editing the question bank to align with NBME style and mapping to curriculum competencies.

Within the Course Directors SIG section is also the Genetics Education Resource Exchange (GERE). The goal of GERE is to provide a straightforward easy way to share teaching materials and resources related to medical and human genetics.  The GERE has a curator (a member of the CD SIG) who is responsible for updating content and soliciting new submissions.


    The posted GERE materials available to members include:

      • multiple choice question bank
      • small group sessions
      • lecture slides
      • flipped classroom materials
      • summaries of available teaching videos
      • sample clinical genetic test results
      • materials from previous workshops
      • USMLE/COMLEX Step Review materials
      • publications by our members related to teaching genetics
      • links to relevant websites and videos
