“What I found about genetic counselling was that whilst you might learn about the science or the condition or inheritance patterns - things that may stay constant - depending on who you're seeing, the families that are coming in to see you or the patients that are coming in to see you will all have a different story.”
In this week’s episode of The G Word #sciencepodcast, our CEO Chris Wigley is joined by Michelle Bishop, Education Development Lead for the Genomics Education Programme and council member at the British Society for Genetic Medicine. Having been involved in genetics and genomics education for over 15 years, Michelle has authored over 40 genomics education resources and 15 peer-reviewed papers, developed specialist NHS training curricula and competency frameworks and provided educational and clinical expertise to national projects as part of the NHS’s transformational adoption of genomic medicine.
Today Michelle talks about ensuring healthcare professionals have access to the right type of education and training, engaging with people beyond the scientific community and genetic counselling. She also discusses her background and her learner centred approach.
