Recognition of Training by the Canadian College of Medical Geneticists (CCMG)

The Canadian College of Medical Geneticists (CCMG) and ABMGG recognize the equivalency of the following programs:

  • CCMG specialty “Genetics and Genome Diagnostics” to Laboratory Genetics and Genomics
  • CCMG specialty “Laboratory Biochemical Genetics” to Clinical Biochemical Genetics
