Genetics Technology Graduate Diploma Program - Courses

 

Semester 1 - Fall

CGGE112 - Cytogenetics Theory & Techniques I

This course will provide the theory and hands-on experience of laboratory techniques currently used in diagnostic Cytogenetics laboratories. The student will acquire the knowledge, skills and techniques required to process bloods, amniotic fluid and solid tissue specimens from receipt to chromosome analysis.

MTGE111 - Molecular Genetics Theory & Techniques I

This course will provide the theory and hands-on experience of molecular laboratory techniques currently used in molecular diagnostic laboratories. The student will acquire the knowledge, skills and techniques required to process whole blood, buffy coat, cultured cells, Guthrie spots and DNA specimens from receipt and molecular testing to analysis of results. Interpretation and troubleshooting will be stressed.

Semester 2 - Winter

CGGE121 - Cytogenetics Theory & Techniques II

This course will provide a continuation of the theory and hands-on experience of laboratory techniques currently used in diagnostic Cytogenetics laboratories. The student will further apply the knowledge, skills and techniques required to process bloods, amniotic fluid and solid tissue specimens from receipt to chromosome analysis.

MTGE122 - Molecular Genetics Theory & Techniques II

This course will provide the theory and hands-on experience of molecular laboratory techniques currently used in molecular diagnostic laboratories. Interpretation and troubleshooting of test results will be stressed.

BAIP125 - Foundations of Interprofessional Collaboration for Medical Laboratory Technology Programs

Interprofessional practice has become a preferred mode of team based practice in health care internationally. This is an online course for Diagnostic Cytology, Genetics Technology and Medical Laboratory Science students to build knowledge of interprofessional practice and collaboration. The first step towards interprofessional practice is a solid foundation of your professional role including expectations with respect to legislation, standards of practice, codes of ethics, consent, confidentiality/privacy etc. These foundational pieces will be developed throughout this course with an eye to meeting and exceeding the required provincial and national competencies surrounding professional responsibilities. Building on this foundation, the course will further introduce students to the concepts and support for interprofessional collaboration and education as well as reflective practice, effective communication, teamwork and conflict management. Each of these components are essential skills in interprofessional practice. Students will engage in weekly learning activities, participate in five online discussions and attend three face-to-face on site workshops during this 13-week course.

Semester 3 - Summer

CLGE133 - Simulated Clinical Education

This is a 12 week simulated clinical course comprised of a 5 week molecular component and a 5 week cytogenetic component. This simulated clinical course provides students with the opportunity to develop skills and behaviours while integrating the requisite knowledge to achieve competence in all aspects of Genetics Technology. Successful completion of this course is required for continuation to CLGE241 Hospital Clinical Education.

Semester 4 - Fall

CLGE242 - Hospital Clinical Education

This is a 20 week Hospital clinical course comprised of an 8 week molecular component and a 12 week cytogenetic component. This Hospital clinical course provides students with the opportunity to develop skills and behaviours while integrating the requisite knowledge to achieve competence in all aspects of Genetics Technology. Successful completion of this course is required for a Graduate Diploma in Genetics Technology.
