Community GeneUS

Growing A Community Together Through Genetic UpSkilling

As genetic testing becomes more prevalent, there is a need for physicians to increase their cancer genetics knowledge. Community GeneUS is designed to help physicians gain the relevant genetic counseling skills and provide better care to patients. Members of this community will receive training, access to events, and support guidance on clinical cancer genetics over two years. This community-based learning program is organized by Lucence Diagnostics and supported by the Singapore Society of Oncology.

Objectives

  • Equip physicians with the relevant genetic counseling skills for test ordering
  • Offer physicians the latest updates around the best practices in genetic testing
  • Provide physicians access to a community for discussions on cancer genetics
