The Department has been very successful in educational activities. Since September 2012, the Department has offered the “Methodologies and technologies applied in Medical Genetics” course of the CING MSc/PhD programmes. Currently, the Department hosts four PhD students in these programmes. In addition, the Department hosts CING MSc students for their MSc Thesis, BSc students for summer internships and practical experience, personnel from other countries training in laboratory procedures and high school students for the weekly work experience program.
In addition, Department personnel are regularly attending workshops and courses abroad for educational updating in the field. The Department staff has acted as local faculty members of the CING hybrid courses in Medical Genetics and other specialised topics that are organised by the European School of Medical Genetics and the European Board of Medical Genetics.
