Genetic testing is critical for diagnosis and potentially treating children who might have an underlying genetic condition. But uncertainty surrounding public or private insurance coverage could prevent patients from getting recommended genetic tests or leave them with expensive medical bills. As a result, some clinicians may alter genetic test recommendations to alleviate the financial burden to patient families. In this issue, Haley Streff and colleagues retrospectively reviewed genetic tests ordered at three pediatric genetics clinics in Texas.
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.
