ACMG 2011 Genetics Review Course Syllabus (BOOK & CD-ROM)
The official ACMG review course book with accompanying CD-Rom for practitioners in the field of medical genetics. Prepared by recognized experts,
this course covers prenatal genetics, cytogenetics, neurogenetics, cancer genetics, mendelian genetics, quantitative genetics, genomic medicine
developmental genetics, metabolic disorders, newborn screening/endocrine disorders, molecular genetics, cancer genetics and genetic counseling.
Also included are a collection of sample question and answers like those one might have encountered on the last 20 years of ABMG examinations.

Hearing Loss, Genetics and Your Child
Many parents and health professionals are surprised to learn that 50% of hearing loss has a genetic basis. Furthermore, a child can have a genetic-
related hearing loss without a positive family history. Therefore, it is critical that parents follow through with medical genetics referrals—even as they
are addressing their child’s hearing and communication issues. The Hearing Loss, Genetics and Your Child brochures are designed to assist medical
professionals in conveying information about the purpose and process of a genetic evaluation and to increase parents’ comfort with seeking genetic
services to assess the etiologic diagnosis of their child’s hearing loss, thus complementing the referral. The brochures are intended for distribution in
primary care offices and clinics, and other settings (such as ENT, Audiology) where infants and children with hearing loss are seen. The brochure is
written at a low-literacy level, and is available in both English and Spanish.

Experience the Future: Discover the Power of Genetics (CD-ROM)
This CD-ROM contains the complete curriculum for an innovative, interactive education program developed for The Endocrine Society’s 2002 Annual
Meeting. Newly expanded in 2005, this tool introduces participants (from regional or national meeting attendees to an undergraduate, graduate or
CME class) to the experience of discussing genetic information and receiving genetic test results through simulated face-to-face counseling
encounters with experienced genetic counselors, working with a medical geneticist. Participants are assigned a specific case scenario (from one of
seven disease-specific modules) and are then walked through their own genetic counseling visit to personally experience the complexity and nuances
of interactions with patients and families receiving genetic testing information. Each of the seven disease-specific modules (cystic fibrosis, fragile X
syndrome, breast cancer, colon cancer, sickle cell disease, hemochromatosis, multiple endocrine neoplasia type II) provides all necessary program
materials for both faculty and participants. Access to medical genetics professionals is required to implement this program.

Early Childhood Hearing Loss: Clinical and Molecular Genetics (CD-ROM)
An Educational Slide Set of the American College of Medical Genetics. A working group of the Education and CME Committee of the American
College of Medical Genetics undertook a major revision of their Early Childhood Hearing Loss slide set. This slide set is now available as a complete
PowerPoint presentation on CD-ROM that includes graphics, lecture notes, references, and questions. The graphic images were professionally
developed to provide high quality presentation materials. The presentation includes some of the most recent guidelines for establishing the genetic
etiology of early hearing loss.

Genetics in Clinical Practice: A Team Approach (CD-ROM)
This genetics education program, based on the "Virtual Practicum" model, is intended for primary care providers with no formal training in genetics.
This case-based program takes place in a "Virtual Genetics Clinic," where the learner can participate in a "Virtual Mini-Fellowship" with a master
clinician/master teacher (Dr. Edward McCabe). The program's flow and content centers on simulated patients who have, or are at risk of developing,
four different diseases in which knowledge of clinical genetics can affect outcome. In some instances, patient outcomes will depend on the learner’s
management decisions and actions. Users are able to visit the Learning Resource Room, in which they can attend lectures given by a breadth of
experts, listen to interviews, engage in activities, and search the World Wide Web for relevant information. This tool is also an excellent adjunct for the
training of genetic counselors, medical laboratory professionals, public health professionals, and others who may have a need to understand genetic

Manual on Reimbursement for Medical Genetics Services (BOOK)
This first edition Manual offers an overview of the basics of billing and reimbursement for health care services and addresses the economic issues of
genetic practice in a rapidly changing healthcare environment. The Manual includes clinical genetics, laboratory genetics and genetic counseling
services. It is designed to help the Medical Geneticist understand the intricacies of billing and reimbursement, as well as some of the problems and
solutions that genetic service providers face in obtaining appropriate reimbursement for their services. It is rich in resource material, important
addresses, and web sites.

ACMG Salary Survey
This Report contains the findings of the web-based Salary Survey conducted by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG), in
October 2011, of its American Board of Medical Genetics (ABMG)/Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) certified MD/DO and PhD members who
practice in the United States. It is the third national survey undertaken by the ACMG to specifically collect data about the compensation of practicing
medical geneticists. Where appropriate, the Report includes comparisons with data collected in the 2009 Salary Survey.
