Abstract

BackgroundThe relevance of Public Health Genomics PHG education among public health specialists has been recently acknowledged by the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region. The aim of this cross-sectional survey was to assess the prevalence of post-graduate public health schools for medical doctors which offer PHG training in Italy.

MethodsThe directors of the 33 Italian public health schools were interviewed for the presence of a PHG course in place. We stratified by geographical area North, Centre and South of the schools. We performed comparisons of categorical data using the chi-squared test.

ResultsThe response rate was 73% 24-33 schools. Among respondents, 15 schools 63% reported to have at least one dedicated course in place, while nine 38% did not, with a significant geographic difference.

ConclusionsResults showed a good implementation of courses in PHG discipline in Italian post-graduate public health schools. However further harmonization of the training programs of schools in public health at EU level is needed.
