Genetic counselors work at the intersection of science and clinical practice, advancing new treatments and providing compassionate patient care. They acquire and utilize a diverse skill set, connecting various disciplines. The profession also provides opportunities to participate in research, advance medical science and pioneer new diagnostic procedures.
Individuals and families are referred for genetic counseling to evaluate their personal and family medical history. Graduates work in a range of specialties including: prenatal, pediatrics, oncology, endocrinology, cardiology and neurology. Genetic counseling professionals are in demand both in industry and in clinical settings, working in hospitals, doctor's offices, laboratories, research, insurance and many other areas of health care.
Genetic counseling is more than just a prescribed role or box. Genetic counseling is a skill set, combining an understanding of complex science and medicine with the ability to communicate. If we think about our profession in this way, there are no boundaries to what we can accomplish as genetic counselors.
