American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG)
The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) is the specialty society for diplomates certified by the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG) and other healthcare professionals committed to the practice of medical genetics. It provides educational resources and a voice for the medical genetics profession. To support the professional needs of its members in the era of genomic medicine and to facilitate the delivery of quality clinical and laboratory medical services to patients and their families, the ACMG Board of Directors has drafted this strategic plan for the 5-year period of 2015-2019.
ACMG will empower its members to be leaders in the integration of genetics and genomics into all of medicine and healthcare, resulting in improved personal and public health.
As the voice of experience and reason in medical genetics and genomics, ACMG will achieve its vision by developing and sustaining initiatives in the three areas outlined below that support the professional needs of its members. ACMG has the unique credibility and breadth of vision to accomplish this mission, and it should do so in collaboration with other professional societies where appropriate.
