Room: tba

Medical and professional training across Europe has been developing significantly in recent years, and is affected by the work done in the various European Organisations active in the area. You will learn how the EBMG (European Board of Medical Genetics), the UEMS (European Union of Medical Specialists) Section of Medical Genetics, and the ESHG, relate and connect to each other. How do these bodies raise standards of training, qualification, and practice in Medical Genetics for the benefit of patients and families? You can meet some of the colleagues active in these fora and learn more about how you may benefit from these organisations and how you can contribute. There will be time for your questions regarding the training in all professional branches in Medical Genetics, the European registration as Genetic Counsellor and Clinical Laboratory Geneticist, and the examination for the European Certificate in Medical Genetics and Genomics for medical doctors.

With the co-operation of:
Jonathan Berg, Chair of Examination Group of UEMS-SMG
Christophe Cordier, Secretary General EBMG
Birgitte Diness, President EBMG
Thomas Liehr, Chair Branch of Clinical Laboratory Geneticists EBMG
Ute Moog, President UEMS-SMG, Chair Branch of Medical Geneticists EBMG
Milena Paneque, former President EBMG
