The goal of this session is to address one of ACMG’s highest priorities – increasing the number of individuals entering the training pipeline to become medical geneticists, genetic counselors or laboratory geneticists.  The session will provide medical students, undergraduate, graduate, and genetic counseling students with the opportunity to learn more about career and training pathways in the field of Medical Genetics. 
The panel will include a medical geneticist, a laboratory geneticist and a genetic counselor.  In addition, the session will review the roles of ACMG and ABMGG and highlight opportunities for students to become engaged with these national organizations. Following the speakers’ presentations, there will be breakout sessions for networking and discussions between the students and individual speakers.
