European Certificate in Medical Genetics and Genomics (ECMGG)

Due to Covid-19, the ECMGG was cancelled in 2020, in common with many other European examinations.
The Committee is working on the development of an online (or possibly multi-centre) version of the ECMGG for 2021, most likely to be staged in late June but the final date has not been set.
It is planned that applications for the ECMGG 2021 will open in January 2021 with an updated Examination General Document and other details.

The European Certificate in Medical Genetics and Genomics (ECMGG) is intended to be the main knowledge-based assessment tool for Clinical / Medical Genetics and Genomics training across Europe, establishing world class-leading standards in the specialty throughout all European countries.
