Abstract:
Implementation of pharmacogenomics-based personalized medicine in a real-world clinical setting will be essential to a more broader adoption of genomics-guided patient care. We now see an increasing need for training the next generation of physicians and other allied health care providers with expertise in the area of clinical pharmacology, drug metabolism and transport, and pharmacogenomics. In an era of increasing complexity in pharmacotherapy, clinical expertise and interpretive skills will be essential, if we are to more meaningfully utilized pharmacogenomics data for real-world patient care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Outline the utility of pharmacogenomics information to patient care
  • Discuss the importance of clinical pharmacology training/background for delivery of patient care
