The CGE based at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, was established in 1989 as the education arm of the NSW Genetics service of NSW Health. From 1989 -2000 it was known as the NSW Genetics Education Program.

The Centre's educational activities which include resource production, workshops and training programs all aim to bring genetics information to the widest audience possible with an aim of assisting in addressing the impact of the new and developing genetics technologies. Our research programs aim to provide an evidence base for these activities.
