ACMG Announces New Online Live Learning Center: Will Bring Genetics and Genomics Education to Varied Health Professionals
Date:8/11/2011

BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) has just unveiled a brand new ACMG Online Live Learning Center, which will bring online genetics education to a variety of health care professionals. This valuable, on-demand resource brings the latest educational programming in genetics and genomics from ACMG's live learning offerings such as the Genetics Review Course and Annual Meeting Short Courses to health professionals who are practicing in, or who are interested in, genetics and genomics.

"The application of our knowledge of genes and the human genome to the practice of medicine is growing and changing at an astounding rate. ACMG is dedicated to being at the forefront of education in genetics and genomics and the new ACMG Online Live Learning Center is an exciting addition to our growing offerings to a variety of medical, laboratory and scientific professionals," said ACMG President Wayne Grody, MD, PhD, FACMG. Go to http://acmg.sclivelearningcenter.com to see the current offerings.

"Many months of work went into creating the new ACMG Online Live Learning Center, and we look forward to expanding the content after each Annual Meeting and other live ACMG programs. We look forward to feedback from users," said Jane Dahlroth, CMP, CEM, ACMG Meetings Manager.

Features of the ACMG Live Online Learning Center include:

  • Recorded educational sessions with video synched to PowerPoint presentations
  • The ability to download the sessions in MP3 format on a mobile device for education-on-the-go at home, in the office or on the road
  • 24-7 Access to the Online Learning Center for year-round content and professional development
  • User-friendly interface and easy navigation
  • No need to re-watch an entire session, viewers can fast forward to sections they want to watch
  • Learning at your own pace -- viewers can pause in the middle of a session to take notes, rewind to watch a section over, etc.
  • The ability to catch up on sessions missed at a conference attended -- it's like having the ability to be in several places at once!

American College of Medical Genetics Announces Increase in Genetics in Medicine Journal Impact Factor of 35% to 5.28

ACMG also announced that the Thomson Reuters Impact Factor Journal Citation Reports has increased the impact factor of the ACMG's peer-reviewed medical genetics and genomics journal, Genetics in Medicine (GIM) from 3.922 to 5.280.  This places GIM in the top 15% of all Genetics journals.  A journal's Impact Factor is an objective measure of the world's leading journals based on articles' cited references and is oft considered a measure of a journal's overall successful performance and relevance of a journal to its field.

"As Editor-in-Chief I am particularly delighted with the rise in Genetics in Medicine's impact factor," said James P. Evans, MD, PhD, FACMG.  "GIM strives to be the leading journal in the field of Clinical Medical Genetics and as such is focused on the wide dissemination of evidence-based articles that address a broad range of issues. Increasingly, genetics and genomics are permeating medicine in a broad fashion. We thus also strive to publish material that matters not only to those in clinical genetics but also to non-genetics specialists who increasingly need to understand how to incorporate genetic advances into their field."
