About the American College of Medical Genetics and ACMG Foundation
Founded in 1991, the American College of Medical Genetics
advances the practice of medical genetics and genomics 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.
Genetics in Medicine, published monthly, is the official ACMG
peer-reviewed journal. ACMG’s website (www.acmg.net) offers a variety of
resources including Policy Statements, Practice Guidelines, Educational
Resources, and a Find a Geneticist tool. The educational and public
health programs of the American College of Medical Genetics are
dependent upon charitable gifts from corporations, foundations, and
individuals. The ACMG Foundation,
a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is a community of supporters and
contributors who understand the importance of medical genetics and
genomics and genetic counseling in healthcare. Established in 1992, the
ACMG Foundation supports the American College of Medical Genetics’
mission to “translate genes into health” by raising funds to promote the
profession of medical genetics and genomics to medical students, to
support the development of practice guidelines for practicing
physicians, to advance the awareness and understanding of medical
genetics and genomics in the general public, and much more.
