Assisted Reproductive Technologies/Infertility SIG

Mission

The mission of the ART/Infertility SIG is to promote genetic counseling as an essential part of the ART/Infertility healthcare delivery team and to provide health care providers and the public with accurate information about topics in ART. Genetic counselors are an integral part of the ART/Infertility healthcare delivery team.

Genetic counselors can be involved in many ways, including preconception family history evaluation, gamete donor screening, counseling about PGT, creating screening protocols, evaluating new genetic testing, and keeping abreast of changes in standard of care for genetic testing. This site is designed to provide the healthcare community with commonly requested information and resources regarding the involvement of genetics in the field of ART/Infertility.
