Medical Genetics for Interpreters
This module is one of four which will present the topic of medical genetics. This first module covers normal, basic human genetics. Subsequent modules address medical genetic principles including inheritance patterns, then specific medical disciplines’ attention to genetic disorders, finally topics in medical genetics which cut across many disciplines such as ethics and genetic engineering.
