On behalf of Dr Hilary Burton of the Cambridge Public Health Genetics Unit and Professor Neva Haites of Aberdeen University, a survey was conducted of all established medical schools in the UK, listed below. The survey forms part of a project sponsored by the Department of Health and The Wellcome Trust to develop a National Strategy for Education in Genetics for Health Professionals. The project will define the needs for assistance, support and resources for genetics education in all sectors of health professional education. Together with The Open University Centre for Education in Medicine, the project is making a special study of the activities and needs of teachers and students in medical schools, which are described in this report.
