Training Programs and Courses

The Human Genome Project and population research have led to a better understanding of how genetics contributes to common chronic conditions and an appreciation for the role of genomics in public health. However, there is a need for genomic research findings to be translated into interventions and tools that are useful for preventive medicine and public health. Many public health professionals need additional support and training to understand advances in genomics and to apply this information to disease prevention and health promotion programs.

CDC’s Office of Public Health Genomics (OPHG) conducts and supports workshops, courses, and other training activities in public health genomics, family history, and human genome epidemiology. OPHG was also involved in developing genomics competencies for public health professionals.
