It used to be that genetics brought to mind fruit flies and sweet peas.
But those days are gone. In a challenging (at least for those of us who
aren't involved in clinical genetics) new Cyberounds, Dr. Jim Lupski,
Cullen Professor of Molecular and Human Genetics and Professor of
Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, asked his colleague, Fernando
Scaglia, M.D., Assistant Professor of Molecular and Human Genetics to
review Mitochrondrial Fatty Acid Oxidation Disorders (FAOD), a hot field,
we're told. The FAOD Cyberounds may make your brain sweat a little, but
you'll get a new understanding of the mutations that interfere with the
energy cycles that run the cells of the heart, liver and skeletal muscles.
As for the CME test, we ought to give double credit if you pass on the
first try but we aren't allowed to do that. One hour in Category I credit
towards the AMA PRA.
"Interactive grand rounds: a class act Cyberounds," writes The Lancet.
"Moderated conferences created by experts." FREE membership for all health
Our genetics conference may give your brain a workout, but our totally
Web-based, automated AMA Category I CME program won't cause you any stress.
Especially, since we've even set it up so that you'll be able to print your
personalized official CME Certificate from The Albert Einstein College of
Medicine, anytime you need it.
