Developments in genomics are profoundly influencing every aspect of medical practice. With the increasing use of genetic and genomic testing, patients and their families are often turning to primary care physicians (PCPs) for discussion and advice regarding tests, implications, and results. Yet, navigating this ever-growing and complex field can be challenging without a working knowledge of the basics and the resources. A critical component in expanding PCP genomic literacy lies in the education of physicians in training and in practice. This presentation focuses on the recently published report of the Association for Molecular Pathology Training and Education Committee on a Suggested Framework for Primary Care Resident Training in Genomic Medicine. It will outline the key role of the molecular professionals to facilitate the education of residents in accordance with curriculum guidelines and requirements for the residency as part of a multidisciplinary approach, coordinated by the primary care program.
