The Fundamentals of Cancer Genomics

The College, with support from the Association of Cancer Physicians (ACP), has developed an e-learning resource on the Fundamentals of Cancer Genomics, targeting clinical and medical oncologists and healthcare professionals involved in the care of cancer patients.

This activity has been supported by a grant from Roche Products Limited and Astrazeneca. Roche products Limited and Astrazeneca have had no control over the educational content of this activity. 

These modules have been designed to complement existing resources, supplementing support for the new ‘mainstreaming’ delivery model of germline genetic testing whereby clinicians counsel and consent high-risk patients for genetic testing at the time of their routine oncology appointments.

You are not required to be a member of the Royal College of Radiologists or the Association of Cancer Physicians.

Course learning objectives

Who is this for?
Clinical oncologists
Medical oncologists
Nurses working in cancer care or research
Cancer researchers (Clinical academics or research scientists)
Clinicians working in primary care with a specialist interest in cancer medicine

These interactive, bite-size modules are the first in what will be a series of genomics learning resources with focus on various tumour types. 

The course will complement existing medical oncology, clinical oncology, and allied health professional training schemes and clinical experience, to give clinicians a deeper understanding of the molecular biology of cancer, germline predisposition to cancer, and the role of genetic variation in initiation and promotion of cancer.

 A unique aspect of this course is that the content will not only address heritable genetic risk factors for cancer but will also emphasise the translational application of somatic and/or genomic results in diagnostics and prognostication, as well as in directing treatment.
