  • The Perinatal Quality Foundation Genetic Education Modules

    To Fellowship and Residency Directors:

    The Perinatal Quality Foundation Genetic Education Modules (GEM) now include no-cost Education Subscriptions for academic settings.  Education subscriptions allow up to 25 trainees (fellows, residents, genetic counseling students) to create one-year accounts at no charge.  The accounts provide full access to GEM provider and patient education materials, as well as pre- and post- tests with results available to the education director.   Each year the subscription provides a new set of 25 enrollment slots for fellows, residents or genetic counseling students. Patient enrollment is not permitted with education subscriptions.

    GEM education and tools provide narrative and resources for patients and providers that facilitate a level of understanding and knowledge sufficient for discussions of available genetic test, their advantages and limitations.  GEM also helps to identify those patients that will benefit from referral to a genetic counselor or geneticist. 

    GEM helps providers comply with ACOG/SMFM standards regarding prenatal genetic testing. For more information please contact us at
