Genetic Counselors

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Certification is not required, although it is highly recommended because most employers will prefer job candidates who are certified. TheĀ American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC) offers certification to candidates who have a graduate degree in genetic counseling, clinical experience in an ABGC-approved training site or sites, and who successfully pass an examination. Contact the ABGC for more information.
