European Certificate in Medical Genetics and Genomics (ECMGG)

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 crisis severely impacts our plans to run the ECMGG on June 5th, 2020, in Berlin.
Severe travel restrictions apply across Europe and elsewhere, and the current design does not make it possible to deliver the examination online.
Reluctantly, but inevitably, the Examination Steering Committee of the ECMGG has therefore decided to cancel the ECMGG 2020.
The examination will be rescheduled, most likely to run in conjunction with the ESHG Conference in 2021.
When further details are known they will appear on this page.
