ACGC established as the accreditation body separate from ABGC

ACGC is a successor organization to the American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC).  As genetic counseling continues to grow as a profession, its accrediting and credentialing bodies need to evolve. In the fall of 2011, ABGC announced the spinoff of its accreditation activities and formation of a separate accrediting body.  As of January 1, 2013 ACGC will officially be a separate organization from ABGC. ABGC will continue to certify individuals who meet qualifications and successfully pass the examination. ACGC will accredit training programs.
