- “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.”
- “Very useful course material that will have great impact on all those who go on to translate this in the clinic in any capacity - as nurses, pharmacists or physicians.”
