Excellent Reviews:
  • “This course was one of the best I've taken in many years. Thanks for offering it.”
  • “This program is excellent. I rarely say that about programs but this program deserves that rating. A must for anyone in clinical practice who graduated before pharmacogenomics was part of their…curriculum.”
