Pharmacogenomics courses in pharmacy school curricula.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Aim: The appropriate use and integration of pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing will pivot on provider preparation and training. Pharmacists have been recognized as one of the key providers in the delivery of PGx testing and as such, professional organizations have recommended inclusion of PGx content in pharmacy curricula. Methods: We reviewed the curriculum of 132 US pharmacy schools for information about PGx courses. Results: A total of 70 core curriculum courses were identified. 55 (42%) pharmacy schools included at least one PGx course as part of the core curriculum, and ten (8%) schools that offered a PGx course elective. Conclusion: While many pharmacy schools have responded to the accreditation standards to include PGx, less than half of the schools have developed a standalone course.
