About the Course

This course will provide you with the key knowledge and tools to understand the fundamentals and practical implications of precision medicine, its opportunities and challenges. It will address precision-medicine era diagnostics, treatment selection, genetic counseling, public health interventions, and biomedical research. It will also deal with data science and ethical issues. From genomic analysis and genetic counseling to cancer biomarkers, from risk assessment of chronic diseases to the understanding of gene-environment interactions, from pharmacogenomics to multi-omics data integration, experts will walk you through the many aspects of precision medicine, from the bench to the bedside and to population health. Designed for students with a bachelor-level training in life sciences, this course will also be useful for professionals who are increasingly expected to deal with precision medicine, including primary care physicians and other first-line healthcare professionals, cancer and non-communicable diseases specialists, public health policy and decision makers, as well as biomedical researchers and drug developers. Experts from the multiple domains of genetics and genomics, oncology, pharmacology, data sciences, ethics, and biomedical research will provide you with a comprehensive, multi-faceted overview of precision medicine, richly illustrated with practical examples and clinical case studies, and peppered with formative evaluations. Whether you are interested or intrigued by topics such as “genethics”, the analysis of exome sequencing, precision diabetes management, hereditary cancers, the ongoing revolution of genetic technologies, genome-exposome interactions, the pharmacogenetics of opioids, data deidentification, blockchain-base patient-consent documentation, or proteomics and biomarkers, this course will explain the concepts, offer insights and present concrete examples, thus providing you with an overall understanding of the rapidly evolving field of precision medicine. - update - The contents of this course have been updated and important corrections have been implemented thanks to learners' feedback. Many thanks to them!...

To be honest, this course was one of the most effective online education that I have ever watched. I hope the advanced course of Percision Medicine will be presented in the futre.

Thank you...

Loved the fact that so many clinicians, bioinformaticians and geneticists were involved and the case studies were nicely presented. Have recommended to my team

Evaluation System is not that a regular student can think of, and In my opinion, it is not the way conceptual knowledge should be graded.

Fabulous and greatly assembled course, although I'd recommend it for professionals engaged in the field.

Great intro to the topic - which is as broad as human variation but focussed on key areas for student learning

My only suggestion for improvement would be the quality of the practice and assessment MCT quizzes - which were linguistically challenging and contorted in places. As a native English speaker I found them difficult at times , which may be amplified for others with English as a secondary language

An in-depth course for those interested in learning about the topic. This is most definitely a course that requires a good understanding of biology, especially genetics and pharmacology. Would highly recommend at the end of the first year of Medicine, Biology, or Science related bachelors.

Gained alot of knowledge. It was abit intense at the begining though, with all the talk on genetics. I almost gave up lol. They should probably make the genetics concepts a little simpler for those with no prior knowledge. Thoroughly enjoyed the course.

The problem was the level of the English spoken by the speakers, it was bad and sometimes impossible to understand, especially for non mother-tongue students. Even the video subtitles sometimes did not make any sense.

The precision medicine course is a fantastic curriculum that gives a thorough overview of the most recent advances in precision medicine. The system is intended to provide students with an understanding of the principles, techniques, and methods employed in customized treatment, as well as how they may alter healthcare delivery.

The course covers genomes, proteomics, metabolomics, and other developing precision medicine technologies. It also discusses the ethical, legal, and social ramifications of customized medicine, as well as the obstacles and opportunities associated with incorporating it into the healthcare system.

This course was really educative and enlightening for me. I learnt a lot about Precision Medicine and my favorite part was Pharmacogenomics. It's a whole new world out there to explore research and exploit these technologies to make further advances in Health and Medicine today. Personally, this course gave me Purpose through exposure. However, the tests were very challenging😅 and the course was very elaborate. Thank you Geneva University. Thank you Coursera❤😊
