Interested in how to use pharmacogenomic testing to select psychiatric meds? The University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry and College of Pharmacy are offering a live videoconference CME course on psychiatric pharmacogenomics. Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is the practice of using information about an individual’s genome to select medications that are likely to be most effective and result in the fewest number of side effects. Upon conclusion of the course, clinicians will be able to: 1) describe basic PGx concepts; 2) distinguish which gene-drug relationships have the most evidence supporting their implementation in the clinic; 3) identify which PGx tests to order; and 4) confidently formulate medication plans using PGx test results. The course meets online for 3 weekly sessions on Wednesday evenings, Jan. 29, Feb. 5, and Feb. 12, with each session 1.5 hours (6:00-7:30pm). Sessions are a combination of interactive lectures and case-based discussion. The course is approved to offer 4.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
