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 following areas that support the professional needs of its members: Clinical & Laboratory Practice, Education, and Advocacy.

Strategic Plan

The three guiding pillars of the Strategic Plan are:

  1. Clinical and Laboratory Practice: Establish the paradigm of genomic medicine by issuing policy statements and evidence-based or expert clinical and laboratory practice guidelines and through descriptions of best practices for the delivery of genomic medicine;
  2. Education: Provide education and tools for medical geneticists, other health professionals and the public and grow the genetics workforce;
  3. Advocacy: Work with policymakers and payers to support the responsible application of genomics in medical practice.
