Last week, the Government launched a new strategy for personalized medicine Strategi for persontilpasset medisin – regjeringen.no . The strategy underscores the need to integrate research and clinical work as personalized medicine becomes an integrated part of the health services.
One of the three thematic aims is of particular relevance to those of us who teach: Personalized medicine is an evolving field, necessitating life-long learning as well as a continuous process of updating the curriculum and programmes in which we teach, in line with adjustments in RETHOS. E.g. molecular biology and microbiology and advanced decision making algorithms and analyses based on artificial intelligence are examples of fields in probable need of expansion and development.
Please remember the upcoming deadline – Monday February 6th – for nominations to the Faculty Awards for research and teaching. Information was published in a previous K2-nytt.
