The Genomics Stream Coordinator will make a major contribution to the teaching, supervision and assessment of the Master of Genetic Counselling and the Master of Genomics and Health (nested suite) programs of the Department. The appointee will contribute to the Department teaching administration and actively promote the discipline.
The Master of Genetic Counselling is a professional Masters course, accredited by the Human Genetics Society of Australasia (HGSA), and successful completion provides entry into the genetic counselling profession. The Master of Genomics and Health (MGH) commenced in 2018 and provides a nested suite of offerings in the area of genomics and health. The subjects in the Genomics Stream are currently mostly shared by the two Masters courses. Reporting to the Program Director, the Genomics Stream Coordinator will provide coordination, teaching, assessment and evaluation of the following subjects:
- Human Genetics and Genomics in Healthcare
- Clinical Genomics
- Clinical Genome Variant Analysis 1 & 2
- Societal Implications of Genomics
- Advanced Clinical Genomics 1
- Advanced Clinical Genomics 2
- Frontiers in Genomics
The incumbent will embrace new and innovative teaching modalities and methodologies to effectively and efficiently meet the educational needs of students in the arena of clinical genetics and genomics. Future expansion of the program will include specialist modules applicable to a broad range of genetic health professionals and the Genomics Stream Coordinator will be expected to take a leading role in this agenda.
