Intensive Course Description
New Curriculum and Distance Only Options. Next Course Starts 10/20/2017
The Intensive Course and Clinical Cancer Genetics Community of Practice embody the tenets of practice-centered situated learning theory. Distance delivery of a modular curriculum responds to the practical time constraints of working clinicians and allows for flexible, self-directed study (e.g., oncologists can opt out of basic oncology content and focus more study time on genetics content, etc.). Concurrent participation in Working Group Clinical Cancer Genetics Web conferences reinforces didactic learning and Genetic Cancer Risk Assessment (GCRA) skills development. Participants have the option of participating in one of two training tracks to customize training to meet their learning needs.

Both tracks include distance didactic learning with corresponding Web conference reviews, and case-based training with Working Group Web conferences. Only Track 1 Full Spectrum Multimodal Training includes four days of face-to-face program development workshops.
Upon completion of training, all participants receive support to apply new learning to practice through 12 months of self-directed engagement and activities as members of the Clinical Cancer Genetics Community of Practice.
