BENEFITS FOR YOU AND YOUR PRACTICE

The ACMG is the only nationally recognized interdisciplinary professional membership organization that represents the interests of the entire medical genetics team including clinical geneticists, clinical laboratory geneticists, and genetic counselors.

 

Together, the ACMG and its members engage in coordinated efforts to improve patient care, ensure optimal reimbursement for genetic service providers, establish standards of care and laboratory policy, and educate members about advances important to their practices.

 

Members of the ACMG receive:

  • Complimentary subscriptions to:
    • Genetics in Medicine, the official monthly journal of the ACMG
    • The ACMG Medical Geneticist, the quarterly newsletter of the ACMG
    • ACMG in Action, the monthly e-newsletter of the ACMG
  • For those elected as members in the category of Fellow, Corresponding Fellow, Emeritus Fellow, or Honorary Fellow, the privilege of using FACMG – Fellow, American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics
  • Substantially reduced registration fees for ACMG events including:
    • the Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting*
    • the Genetics Review Course*
  • Discounts on ACMG products and educational materials, including ACMG's Genetics Academy, offering online CME programs.
  • Opportunities to become actively engaged in medical genetics on a national level by:
    • participating as a member on ACMG Committees*
    • commenting on draft ACMG statements and policies
    • networking with peers from around the US and Canada, and the world
  • Advance notice of published Practice Guidelines, Policy Statements and Standards and Guidelines released by ACMG
  • Access to “Members Only” information and resources on including the ACMG Salary Survey
  • Opportunities to participate in ongoing advocacy activities for all recognized providers of clinical genetic services, including ACMG activities that impact ICD and CPT coding, which directly impact reimbursement

The ACMG is in a unique position to speak for genetic service providers because of our representation on American Medical Association (AMA) committees. CPT codes are established solely through the AMA, so our CPT Advisory Committee member and Delegate to the AMA House of Delegates give our relatively small group a larger voice where it really counts. Ensuring the College’s AMA seat is critical. Therefore, we strongly encourage physician members to join the AMA to meet our AMA membership requirement. For physician members who belong to or join the AMA, the ACMG offers reduced dues to minimize the additional financial burden incurred from joining the AMA.
