Clinical and Continuing Education

We empower health professionals to integrate genomics into their clinical practice, working with clinicians, hospitals, health systems, and training programs to develop education programs that address specific knowledge gaps or barriers. We develop online programs and resources, in-person interactive workshops, and blended learning opportunities for diverse health providers.


In 2013, The Jackson Laboratory signed an agreement with the National Coalition of Health Professional Education in Genetics (NCHPEG) to acquire the organization’s extensive educational programs and assets and hire three core employees. NCHPEG was founded in 1996 as an "organization of organizations" committed to a national effort to promote health professional education and access to information about advances in human genetics. The organization grew to represent more than 50 health professional organizations, consumer and volunteer groups, government agencies, private industry, managed care organizations and genetics professional societies. With this agreement, The Jackson Laboratory leverages 17 years of expertise, education, and resources in genetic and genomic education for diverse health professional audiences. If you are trying to find a NCHPEG resource and cannot, please contact the CCEP staff directly.
