This permanent education course intends to fulfil the need of a growing number of professions (from industry as well as from health care, for diagnostic or for research purposes) in which theoretical bases of all aspects of human genetics are useful or required. This course provides a uniform and adequate theoretical background for all those taking up responsibilities in human genetics-related activities within the different Belgian genetic centers.
The course is organized every two years. The next edition will start in October, 2023. Instructions for registration can be found in this file.
This course is organized one Friday per month by each Human Genetics Center. The training days are alternately hosted by KUL, ULB, UGent, UCL, UA, ULiège and VUB.
