Course Description

The 2021 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 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.

This course contains accredited sessions with recorded content and live Q&A, ondemand sessions, scientific sessions, and platform sessions.

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. These select sessions from the ACMG Annual Meeting are 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

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, 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, and learn about novel therapeutic approaches including gene editing.
  • Review select inborn errors of metabolism, approaches to their diagnoses and treatment, as well as new disorders on the recommended uniform screening panel.
  • Discuss challenges of the COVID 19 pandemic and different solutions to deliver the tripartite mission of clinical care, education, and research in medical genetics.
  • Describe a potpourri of issues relating to medical genetics including history; ethical, legal and regulatory issues; health disparities, job negotiation; and many others.
