European Certificate in Medical Genetics and Genomics (ECMGG)

Registration for the ECMGG is now closed for 2022

In 2020 the ECMGG was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021 it was successfully provided as an online exam.

The format in 2022 will be very similar to the examination in 2021, i.e. two parts, online:

1. Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) paper – 110 questions. This paper will be scheduled for June 24th, 2022, delivered online with remote proctoring in association with a commercial examination provider. It is usually accessible from any private location with a good internet connection. A trial connection will be undertaken during the weeks prior to the exam. It will be essential to pass the MCQ paper to progress to the oral assessment.

2. Short Oral Assessment (SOA) – 6 stations. This will be scheduled for September 19th, 2022 for those candidates who passed the MCQ paper.

More details are available in the 2022 Examination General Document which is also available on this page.

For logistic reasons, the number of candidates that can be accommodated in the 2022 ECMGG will be limited to 50. Priority will be given to candidates from nations which are members of the UEMS-Section of Medical Genetics. Non-medical graduates are not eligible to sit the ECMGG.
