Abstract

Integrating clinical genetic education in physician training is an important strategic approach in the era of genomic medicine. To understand how much the board examinations of the American Board of Medical Specialties contain genomics-related content, a descriptive analysis of 21 exam blueprints was performed. Topics in genomics were not included in 43% of specialty blueprints which shows underrepresentation of clinical genetics in graduate medical education curricula.
