Genetic Counselors

Genetic counselors have a minimum of a master's degree in genetic counseling or a related field. The former includes extensive training in both human genetics as well as psychology.

Board Certification for Genetic Counseling is offered every three years by the American Board of Genetic Counseling.

All Genetic Counselors at Emory Genetics are Board-Certified and work under the supervision of a Board-Certified MD Clinical Geneticist, who reviews and signs out on all of the genetic counseling cases.
