Dear colleague,

The advent of personalized medicine and its incorporation into the clinic
will depend to a great extent on the education of pharmacogenomics (PGx) to
our future physicians and health-care professionals.

Since 2001 my colleagues at Tel-Aviv University Faculty of Medicine and
myself have been involved with the incorporation of pharmacogenomics
education for our MD students (see: Gurwitz D, Weizman A, Rehavi M. 2003.
Education: Teaching pharmacogenomics to prepare future physicians and
researchers for personalized medicine. Trends Pharmacol Sci. 24:122-125).

I write asking for your kind collaboration with a global survey on
"Pharmacogenomics Education in Medical Schools". The attached questionnaire
will require only few minutes of your time, yet your input will be very
helpful for improving PGx education in medical schools. Survey data will be
processed statistically, and not linked to specific schools.

We hope to present the survey at the coming 3rd Annual Meeting of the
International Society of Pharmacogenomics (ISP)
(September 30 - October 4, 2004 - Santorini Island, Greece): http://biol.prospective-conf.u-nancy.fr/

We meanwhile invite you to post your comments and suggestions at our
"Education for Pharmacogenomics Discussion Forum": http://pagesperso.laposte.net/pharmacogenomic/upload/index.php?s=1 91a5c8c69cbc1c8a67afd3827af9d3b&act=SF&f=2

If you are not able to complete this questionnaire, or if you feel that
someone else in your faculty is more qualified to complete it, kindly
forward it to your colleagues.

Thank you for your kind collaboration in this survey.

Sincerely,

David Gurwitz
