Education

We have a range of information on genomics, its applications for individual and population health, and associated policy issues, freely available for use.

Genomics in mainstream medicine resources

Working with the Joint Committee for Genomics in Medicine, we are producing a set of resources aimed at clinicians and presenting examples of where genomics is making a difference in mainstream medicine. These resources can be accessed on our Clinical champions page

Interactive tutorials 

Between 2007 and 2009 PHG Foundation published a series of genomics related tutorials which were freely available on our website and Youtube. 

Recognising that information within the tutorials has not been reviewed since they were published and may now be out of date, we have removed this content from our website and Youtube.

Up to date examination of the issues relevant to the biomedical and digital technologies emerging into healthcare today  - or on the near horizon - can be found on our research,  advocacy and blog pages. For a quick overview of these technologies take a look at our infographics.

Training and development opportunities

We are able to provide bespoke training and personal development opportunities for postgraduate students, trainees and visiting scholars.

Specialist Registrars in Public Health

We are accredited by the Faculty of Public Health to offer training placements in public health genomics for Specialist Registrars on secondment from their main training scheme. Trainees are supervised by experienced Consultants in Public Health Medicine.

Internships

We offer a small number of internship opportunities throughout the year. Most are advertised through HEIs and doctoral training partnerships; some may be advertised on our jobs page. Internships are for a minimum of three months and may offer roles supporting our core programme, marketing or fundraising. For those without HEI, research council or other sponsorship we will pay the Living Wage.

Volunteering and work experience

We welcome enquiries from suitably qualified people who are interested in volunteering to support the Foundation's work. We will consider enquiries about short term work experience from applicants with a genuine interest in pursuing a career in science, health or related business functions.

For more information about any of these opportunities, please contact us.
