San Diego

I will be away for a few days. Just like Hsien Hsien I will be in California. Southern Cali for a conference. I will be presenting my findings on medical residents and their lack of genomic knowledge. Our group is a collaborative effort of Yale, Harvard, and Mount Sinai Schools of Medicine. What we found so far is scary, but not surprising. Especially after the story I told you yesterday. Residents with the most confidence in doing testing and family histories are the least knowledgeable about the subject with their average knowledge scores around 40-50%!!!!!
So beware residents asking family histories as well......Until I finish teaching them :)
See you on Wednesday!!!!
