    The links on this page will take you to our sponsored (and thus free) online tutorials for those resources. You have access to those without cost. OpenHelix also offers a suite of other online tutorials (over 50) on additional resources for a subscription. You can get access to those here.

    You might consider adding the program “The Future of Medicine: Pharmacogenomics” which was sponsored by the US Food and Drug Administration and the American College of Clinical Pharmacology ( It has 13 sections, each with an Overview and a Depth Module, so is a complete course.
