How to facilitate genetic testing for individuals at high-risk for hereditary cancers? Offer immediate genetic testing

Genetic testing can help identify those at risk for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome and Lynch syndrome. Yet, fewer than one-fifth of individuals who are eligible have undergone genetic testing. One obstacle is that the most effective approaches for implementing hereditary cancer risk screening programs have not yet been determined. Catharine Wang and colleagues assessed genetic counseling and testing uptake following the use of a digital cancer genetic risk assessment program. Individuals at 27 healthcare sites across 10 states were screened for genetic cancer risk using CancerIQ, a digital healthcare technology platform. CancerIQ gathers comprehensive patient data and triages patients into different risk tiers. The program facilitates genetic testing orders, creates personalized care plans for patients based on testing results, and monitors all follow-up care. It also supports clinicians via automated alerts to patients and providers when follow up cancer screenings are due. In total, more than 100,000 people were screened and nearly one third were identified as high risk. Sixteen percent of those identified as high risk proceeded with genetic testing.

Figurehead afloat off 90 Mile Beach 2014
Rodney Forbes

From my 2014 exhibition ‘The Lost White Woman of Gippsland’, this painting looks at the trumped-up settlement-era myth of a white woman in captivity with the Gunai-Kurnai tribe of Southern Australia. The story was used as a pretext for punitive massacres of the Aboriginals. This figurehead was a key part of the story, as the Gunai-Kurnai surrendered a ship’s figurehead that was in their possession, in an attempt to placate their white accusers.

Genetics in Medicine to publish pre-proofs to speed up publication of accepted manuscripts

Genetics in Medicine has made the decision to start publishing accepted, peer reviewed articles in an online pre-proof format to speed up the availability of accepted articles to readers. Until now, articles were only published online after copy editing and correction of proofs which can delay the availability of articles.

Education and Events

ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting

The ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting is where geneticists gather for the best four days of medical genetics.

Medical genetics is experiencing growth and exciting development in diagnostic and treatment options. Reunite with your peers to learn about updates, hear case studies and experience a recommitment to providing your patients with optimal care.

Welcome to the ACMG Genetics Academy.

The mission of the CME program is to provide education and tools for medical geneticists, other health professionals and the public and grow the genetics workforce. From the fundamentals of genetics and genomics to the best practices of clinical care, ACMG courses will enable them to provide the very best possible care to their patients and perform optimally in their other professional responsibilities as measured by improvements in competence, performance, and patient health status.


Genetics in Medicine

European Journal of Radiology Open
Genetics in Medicine (GIM) is the official journal of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics. The journal's mission is to enhance the knowledge, understanding, and practice of medical genetics and genomics through publications in clinical and laboratory genetics and genomics, including ethical, legal, and social issues as well as public health. As genetics and genomics continue to increase in importance and relevance in medical practice, the journal will be an accessible and authoritative resource for the dissemination of medical genetic knowledge to all medical providers through appropriate original research, reviews, commentaries, standards, and guidelines. GIM encourages research that combats racism, includes diverse populations and is written by authors from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds.
