Professor in Clinical Genetics and Genomic Education

Professor Kate Tatton-Brown studied medicine at the University of Oxford before training first in Paediatrics and then in Clinical Genetics. Kate is passionate about upskilling the healthcare workforce to embrace genomics and use genomic data to transform patient management. She is a national leader in genomic education and has been directing the development of a portfolio of online, in-person and blended educational resources for the specialist (clinical genetics) and non-genomics healthcare workforce.

Included in this portfolio are three Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) that, collectively, have reached over 50,000 learners worldwide and were the first Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accredited genomics MOOCs available within the UK; a postgraduate certificate for clinical geneticists across the UK; a Masters in Clinical Genomics and national workshops for clinical scientists/consultant clinical geneticists. She is also the Clinical Lead for Genomic Education at the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges where she is collaborating with Health Education England and NHS England to establish a cadre of genomic champions amongst the non-genomics clinical workforce and develop a new, innovative online resource that will be available across the specialties and roles within the NHS.
