Working Groups

CGC Working Groups


CGC Working Groups create evidence-based reviews and practice considerations, to positively impact the appropriate utilization and reimbursement of genomics testing in cancer. In this forum, working groups bring together members of our community of all disciplines to facilitate teamwork, personal growth, professional growth and scientific achievements. We're grateful to the eight CGC Working Groups who completed and published their work.
