Precision medicine is at the forefront of Medical Science innovation and individualised health care improvements, taking into account individual variabilities in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. In this subject, the current context and overall clinical utility of precision medicine are explored. The latest advances in Science which feed into precision medicine - including ‘omics’, customised therapies, molecular profiling, cellular and biologic interventions - are investigated through the lens of real-world cases to ensure students are aware of the very latest innovations in the sector as well as the current challenges and limitations. Sector-wide progress and medical needs for the future of precision medicine are examined in the contexts of prevention, diagnosis, intervention, therapy, and prognosis for the individual.
