Review Questions of Clinical Molecular Genetics presents a comprehensive study guide for the board and certificate exams presented by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) and the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG). It provides residents and fellows in genetics and genomics with over 1,000 concise questions, ranging from topics in cystic fibrosis, to genetic counseling, to trinucleotide repeat expansion disorders. It puts key points in the form of questions, thus challenging the reader to retain knowledge. As board and certificate exams require knowledge of new technologies and applications, this book helps users meet that challenge.

Key Features

  • Includes over 1,0000 multiple-choice, USMLE style questions to help readers prepare for specialty exams in Clinical Cytogenetics and Clinical Molecular Genetics
  • Designed to assist clinical molecular genetic fellows, genetic counselors, medical genetic residents and fellows, and molecular pathologist residents in preparing for their certification exam
  • Assists trainees on how to follow guidelines and put them in practice


Clinical geneticists in training (clinical molecular genetic fellows, clinical cytogenetic fellows, clinical biochemistry fellows); Medical genetic residents/fellows, Pathology residents/fellows (molecular pathology, laboratory medicine), Genetic counselor students
