Vermont Oxford Rady Children's Genomic Network

A learning network to shape the future of genomic medicine in newborn care.

Acutely ill infant in NICU

Registration is Open

Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine is leading the way in advancing precision healthcare for infants through genomic medicine research.

The collaboration between VON and Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine seeks to advance the quality of newborn care by creating a learning network to expand knowledge and competency in genomic medicine for multidisciplinary NICU teams.

Participation in the Genomic Network is a complimentary benefit of VON membership. If you are not a VON member, please contact us about opportunities to participate in the Genomic Network.

Designed for Multidisciplinary NICU teams

Diagnosis and treatment of genetic conditions requires a committed multi-disciplinary team

Institution-level membership is open to neonatal and pediatric intensive care teams from hospitals interested in learning more about clinical application of genomic medicine as well as those with well-established clinical genomic and research programs.

Participating teams should include diverse professionals such as medical geneticists, genetic counselors, medical ethicists, lab directors, neonatologists, pediatricians, fellows, NICU nurses and neonatal nurse practitioners, physician medical directors, nursing directors.

Harness the Power of the Genomic Network

Expand your multidisciplinary NICU team’s knowledge of precision medicine

Expert faculty leading the Genomic Network will facilitate learning, sharing, and collaboration between colleagues currently practicing genomic medicine and those new to it.

Learning activities include quarterly webinars, annual conferences or workshops and online learning resources. The activities will allow healthcare clinicians to explore best practices and deepen genomic literacy among teams with limited exposure to the application of genomic medicine.
