ICARE Genetics Case Conferences

As part of our educational engagement efforts, ICARE hosts an hour-long monthly web-based Genetics Case Conference. Healthcare providers from across the world who recruit high-risk patients to ICARE regularly attend and present cases for discussion and feedback from experts in the field of cancer genetics.

To view all webinars and case conference videos, please click here to visit our YouTube channel.

Who can access ICARE case conferences?

*Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis for providers who are unable to recruit to ICARE due to institutional constraints, but actively participate in/contribute to case conferences.
