About this section

The Medical Genetics Section’s purpose is to facilitate cross-specialty education, integration and progress in the field of genetic medicine and to provide insight into and promote recent advances in genetic medicine as a cross-cutting discipline.

The genetics of… - webinar series

The genetics of… series has been developed following feedback from delegates attending the Genetics of COVID-19 webinars over the last few weeks. Presented by the Medical Genetics section of the Royal Society of Medicine, this series of talks will focus on the role of genetics in different areas of health and well-being.

Section Council members

Section meetings and conferences are usually organised by members of the Section Council, led by the Section President and often in collaboration with specialist societies.
