About the TAGC International Network

In 2006, the first ever international meeting of genetic counselor educators was held in Manchester, England with representatives from eighteen countries, including forty-five genetic counseling programs and fifteen professional organizations. At this inaugural conference, “Genetic Counseling Education: Connecting the Global Community,” participants were eager to tap the potential for future collaboration and created the Transnational Alliance for Genetic Counseling.

TAGC strives to foster communication and collaboration among the international genetic counseling community and enhance genetic counseling education transnationally. Our formal incorporation was adopted at TAGC Barcelona 2008. Since then, TAGC Montreal 2011 and TAGC Barcelona 2016 have built on our connections and several collaborative projects are underway. The TAGC listserv promotes our continued transnational communication. Where will we meet next? Stay connected and see!

This website serves as the nexus for the TAGC, continuing and building upon our global connections and as a resource site to the greater genetic counseling community. As you explore herein, we welcome your input and international perspectives.
