Training Course Genetics in Family Medicine – 9th edition – Spring 2024

19th April 2024 | Hybrid event – i3S (Meeting room A) and Online

The CGPP organizes the 9th edition of the Training Course Genetics in General and Family Medicine.
The aim of this course is to enable health professionals working in primary care to update their knowledge and skills in the field of medical genetics. In the long term, we hope to contribute to health care improvement provided to genetic disease patients and to raise awareness about potential genetic risks in a family. Thus, guest speakers will address relevant topics in a practical format, based on the presentation of clinical cases and warning signs for Medical Genetics referral, supported by tools and resources generally used in clinical practice.
At a time in which genetic tests are increasingly present in clinical practice and their usefulness is significantly reinforced, obtaining and using genetic data has been leading to an exponential increase of genetic tests performed. In this edition, we will revisit basic themes and concepts of Medical Genetics, with the most recent advances in genetic diagnosis in consideration. We will also learn about Hemochromatosis and the preventive role of General Practitioners, understand which diagnostic methodologies are currently available, the challenges in interpreting results, as well as addressing the warning signs for Dementias.

The course will be taught in Portuguese.


Target audience: Specialists and Interns in General and Family Medicine, Doctors and Interns from other Specialties and other Health Professionals.
