Getting Started

Welcome to Genetics in the Physician Assistant's Practice. This site is designed to help you apply genetic family history information and work through genetic differential diagnoses in practice. To get the most out of this site, we recommend first reviewing the supplementary material in the tabs at the top of the page. In particular, content in the genetics primer and family history exercises should help you reason through the case studies. Next, work throught the case studies in the order they are presented (case three is intended to be the most difficult).

During each case, click the computer icon to learn more about selected topics. These "learn more" links are an essential part of the site and will ultimately help you make the correct diagnosis.

CME Credits

There is a link to CME questions after each case study. If you are an eligible member of the AAPA, you will receive category 1 credit for each case study if you score 70% or higher on the post test. >>More info
