European Certificate in Medical Genetics and Genomics (ECMGG)

MORE INFORMATION


BACKGROUND

The ECMGG examination is a joint development of the UEMS Section of Medical Genetics (UEMS-SMG) and the Branch of Medical Genetics and Genomics of the European Board of Medical Genetics (EBMG-BMGG), and has the support of the European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG). The examination is overseen and supervised by the ECMGG Examination Group of the UEMS-SMG. It is open to candidates who are trainees or fully trained Clinical Geneticists from any nation (ie, not restricted to Europe). The ECMGG will be valid for practice only in countries where it is ratified as an official certificate for this purpose by national regulatory bodies or organisations.

Following a pilot examination held in Milan in June 2018, the first full examination took place on June 14, 2019, as a satellite event of the European Human Genetics Conference in Gothenburg, Sweden (the exam was delivered as a Diploma – the EDMGG).

The majority of candidates were successful and were awarded a certificate, valid for life. See the list of certification holders.
