Genetic Testing in Psychiatry: The Hype and the Hope
July 17, 2021
The goal of this symposium is to help clinicians understand both the utility and limitations of genetic testing in psychiatric practice.
Our expert speakers, both researchers and clinicians, will share some of the scientific evidence for the role of pharmacogenomics in psychiatry. They will review some of the most common genes associated with various psychiatric disorders. They will also present practical pearls so you may learn how to use genetic testing to improve patient outcomes.
