About us

Precision Medicine Advisors was launched to serve an unmet need in the health care field.  We are a group of academics who provide customized educational programs around genomic and precision medicine to health care providers, academic institutions, industry, and other stakeholders. While there are a lot of free educational materials out there, most are not appropriate for a lay professional audience with limited background in genomics. Our programs are crafted to meet the needs of busy professionals who want to learn the basics of precision medicine or gain practical skills for implementing precision medicine into practice. We provide an interactive learning experience through live workshops, seminars, webinars and mini-courses and our new online portal, Precision Medicine Academy.  The Academy provides a portal through which subscribers can access new content on demand on a variety of topics related to precision medicine and interact with faculty.
