COURSE DESCRIPTION

The 2022 ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting: Digital Edition presents both research and clinical topics that promote the science and the practice of clinical genetics and genomics. Sessions will focus on the latest discoveries of the etiology and the pathogenesis of genetic disorders, the latest developments in genetic testing and screening, the laboratory’s role in the diagnosis of genetic disorders, the treatment of genetic disorders in children and adults, the delivery of genetic services, and more.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the advances in genetic testing including prenatal and postnatal indications, gene panels, genome sequencing, interpretation, genetic counseling, and ethical and legal issues.
  • Review select rare and common genetic disorders, from developmental disabilities to cancer predisposition syndromes, as well as novel therapeutic approaches including gene editing.
  • Review select inborn errors of metabolism, approaches to their diagnoses and treatment, new disorders on the recommended uniform screening panel.
  • Recognize the importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in genetic clinical care and research, and the inclusion as an essential component for genetic workforce development.
  • Analyze the need for innovation and new approaches to transforming the current practice of genetic medicine to achieve a vision of genomically-informed precision population health.

Target Audience

All healthcare professionals interested in the diagnosis, management, treatment, and prevention of genetic conditions and increasing their understanding of the genetic basis of common, chronic health problems affecting both children and adults will find the programming applicable to their practice. The ACMG Annual Meeting is targeted for the following professionals:

  • Medical and clinical geneticists; genetic counselors; pediatric, obstetric, and maternal-fetal specialists; and all medical practitioners who are providing comprehensive diagnostic, management, and counseling services for patients with, or at risk for, genetically influenced health problems
  • Laboratory directors and technicians who conduct genetic testing
  • Researchers involved in the discovery of genetic disorders and treatments
  • Clinical, laboratory and research trainees of genetics and all biomedical sciences
  • Any healthcare and public health professionals who have an in interest in medical and clinical genetics and genomics
  • Advocates for patients with genetic conditions and their families
