Genetic Counseling

Genetic counselors are healthcare professionals with expertise in the field of genetics. As master’s-degree providers, they receive specialized training in both medical genetics and counseling to help individuals and their families understand how inherited diseases may impact their medical care. The genetic counselors of the Cardiovascular Genetics Program are licensed by the State of Illinois and are deemed board-certified/eligible by the American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC).

To find out more about genetic counselors, please visit the National Society of Genetic Counselors website: nsgc.org.
