Genetics for Health Professionals

Welcome to the VGEC's resources for health professionals. The VGEC is a growing, and evolving, collection of evaluated educational resources. This section is still being developed in dialogue with a number of partner institutions, including the NHS National Genetics Education and Development Centre.


Topics for Health Professionals contains brief introductions into areas of genetics relevant to health professionals.


Resources for Health Professionals houses training and teaching resources written specifically for health professionals.

GENIE is in the process of developing a range of CPD courses for health professionals. Please contact us if you have a suggestion for a particular topic or audience.

Evaluation and Feedback

A key aspect of the VGEC is evaluation of teaching and learning. In order for the VGEC to grow and evolve, we encourage comments on how we could improve the site.  You can submit a resource or comment on the VGEC.
