We offer the global perspective to integrate the competence of a registered nurse, public health nurse, midwife or a biomedical laboratory scientist or other suitable health and welfare professionals to the genetic-genomic area, like clinical laboratory geneticists . When professionals working in the field on genetics and genomics are to deliver safe, quality care, they need to be able to demonstrate competence in genetics-genomics as it applies to their practice specialty. You will have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, always reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of this knowledge.
