Rady Children's Institute for Genomic Medicine | Rapid Precision Medicine Grand Rounds

Expanding Genomic Expertise

Join us for Rapid Precision Medicine™ (RPM®) Grand Rounds, a no cost monthly education series presented in collaboration with Illumina.
At each session, clinicians and researchers at the forefront of innovation explore how clinically relevant genomic research is being used to improve patient management.

When an uncertain variant + an uncertain gene = clinical certainty

October Virtual Grand Rounds

Variants of uncertain significance may have clinical relevance and could guide clinical management.


  • Kristen Wigby, MD, FACMG
  • Katarzyna (Kasia) Ellsworth, PhD, FACMG
  • Jerica Lenberg, MS, CGC


  • Wed., Oct. 28, 2020 – LIVE at 5 pm PDT

Free registration required.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the differential diagnosis for neuromuscular disorders in critically ill pediatric patients
  • Identify the features in the case presentation that are consistent with mitochondrial disease
  • Discuss how a variant is classified as a VUS and how a gene is classified as a GUS

Physicians may earn one AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. 

  • This activity is intended for the Genomic Community.
  • The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
  • The CME staff, staff/course coordinators, planning committee members, and CME committee reviewers do not have any relevant financial relationships to disclose.
  • The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
