Survey of genetics in Canadian undergraduate medical curricula

18 Dec 2022 4:31 PM | Karen Gottlieb (Administrator)

In 2015, a curriculum survey led by APHMG members reported the status of genetics curricula in US and Canadian medical schools, including many of our APHMG member institutions. Our Canadian colleagues, including APHMG member Jennifer Fitzpatrick, recently published a detailed analysis of preclinical genetics curricula of Canadian medical schools that explores and compares these curricula at the level of individual syllabi and course objectives. This is an important and timely study that underscores a reality that our Association can positively impact:  Genetics remains underrepresented in undergraduate medical curricula. Thanks to all of our colleagues for their dedicated work.  Bring your ideas to the 2023 APHMG meeting and let’s work together to improve genetics access and representation in medical schools.
