Pharmacogenomics CME: No-Cost Research Opportunity From Mayo Clinic

The Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine's Education program invites you to participate in the research study, Infusing Social Learning Theory into Online Education. While providing participants expert pharmacogenomics education, the purpose of this research is to study the impact of social learning interventions on knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and the impact of pharmacogenomics online education on clinical practice.

Participants who complete the online education are eligible for continuing medical education credits at no cost.

Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes may affect the body's response to, or interaction with, medications. It is a rapidly changing science with many complexities and confounding factors that can make implementation into clinical practice difficult. Although pharmacogenomics testing is increasingly being made available to guide medication selection, dosing, and to avoid adverse drug reactions, most medical professionals have not been trained on how to use results in clinical practice.

We are seeking to enroll physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants who report no prior formal pharmacogenomics training.

If you agree to participate you will be asked to:

  • Complete surveys at enrollment and 3, 6 and 12 months after completion of the educational program
  • Complete 7.75 hours of online asynchronous (on your own) pharmacogenomics education prior
  • Participate in a follow-up activity ranging from 30 minutes-2 hours

Following the study, the participants have access to the online education for the life of the course. Participation is voluntary and your current and/or future employment at Mayo Clinic will not be affected by whether or not you participate.
