Masters Human Pathology - Council Genetics and predictive medicine Back
"Human Pathology" is the only mention of research that combines in a single training as important areas of biomedical research as Infectious Diseases, Cancer, Genetics, Environment, Nutrition and Cardiovascular Diseases.
The essential objectives of the reference to "Human pathology" of the "Health Sciences" field are of two kinds: biomedical research training scientific students and students of the courses of health (civil and military) and vocational training to new health, genetics and medicine Predictive consultancy professions and trades related to the environment and health.
These objectives are essential to meet new health issues such as infectious diseases, genetic diseases, cancer, the effects of the environment on health (pollution, smoking), the health consequences of the geopolitical upheavals (displacement, bioterrorism) and cardiovascular diseases. As must training be interdisciplinary and include training in clinical research deficit in France. So training should it be interdisciplinary and include training in clinical research, a deficit in France.
In terms of knowledge:
To train genetic counselors. These are professionals working in tandem with a doctor in the fields of genetics and predictive medicine (genetic counseling, assessment and risk management, creation of family trees, and contact information to families, integrate social , psychological, cultural, legal and ethical issues, introduction of search options ...). Fields of application are varied (Mendelian inheritance, multifactorial, prenatal diagnosis, cancer genetics, neurogenetics , pediatrics, cardiovascular, endocrinology, nutrition and metabolism disorders ...).
Provide high-level training in both the scientific and medical health professionals geneticists not have to take care of disorders in hereditary component and / or multifactorial.
Promote the development of research programs and actions for health in cross-cutting areas combining public health and modern biology with a vocation finalized in health. In this regard, the prosecution theory is encouraged (Graduate School EDSVS, ED 62).
In terms of skills:
Are taught the methodological aspects of genetics and predictive medicine (and populations formal genetics, molecular basis of diseases, Mendelian inheritance and multifactorial , cytogenetics, genetic testing, care-person relationship, psychological impacts, ethical and legal aspects) and their application areas (prenatal diagnosis, cancer genetics and oncology, neurogenetics , cardiovascular disease and hemostasis, endocrinology, diabetes, metabolic diseases ...).
