American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics
The ABMGG Safety Module is comprised of an in-depth discussion of key, critical topics identified as impacting patient healthcare safety. Each of the topics covered include current references and specific clinical case examples that are relevant to medical genetics and genomics. The cases cover instructive yet challenging situations relevant to both clinical genetics and laboratory genetics and genomics.
Diplomates are required to complete one Safety module per specified timeframe of their ABMGG Continuing Certification MOC program.
One safety module will be posted, it will be available for a 10 year period, and will then be reviewed and updated as needed.
The safety module consists of:
PowerPoint presentation of approximately 85 slides, with references imbedded with each topic area.
Post-reading test – Consists of 6 multiple-choice questions. Responses are scored immediately.
The test may be taken as often as necessary to achieve a passing score of 80% or better. The system does not record the number of attempts. If you do not achieve a passing score on the post-reading test, the program will identify which questions you answered incorrectly so that you can review the module and try again.
