West Midlands NHS Genomics Medicine Centre – Education
The 100K Genomes Project has the potential to change clinical practice, bringing benefits to patients across the region and creating a legacy which embeds genomics in healthcare. West Midlands is the largest genomic medicine centre taking part in the 100,000 Genomes Project and comprises a consortium of 18 trusts across the region.
A genomics education and training programme has been established at the ITM to support the delivery of the project and provide genomics education and training.
