2012 ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting
REGISTRATION & HOUSING
Founded in 1991, the
American College of Medical Genetics
advances the practice of medical genetics by providing education, resources and a voice for more than 1400 biochemical, clinical, cytogenetic, medical and molecular geneticists, genetic counselors and other healthcare professionals committed to the practice of medical genetics. ACMG’s activities include the development of laboratory and practice standards and guidelines, advocating for quality genetic services in healthcare and in public health, and promoting the development of methods to diagnose, treat and prevent genetic disease.
Professionals in medical and clinical genetics provide comprehensive diagnostic, management and genetic counseling services for patients with, or at risk for, genetically influenced health problems, with an approach to patient care that it includes concern for the health of the individual patient’s family members. Clinical genetics professionals also plan and coordinate large scale screening programs for inborn errors of metabolism, hemoglobinopathies, chromosome abnormalities, neural tube defects and other genetically-influenced conditions. As the genetic factors underlying many diseases become better understood, professionals in this medical specialty are increasingly called upon to educate their colleagues, and to manage complex patient care that cuts across many different specialties.
