Blended Learning Session – Tell Me More about Becoming a Genetic Counsellor

Genetic Counselling is a growing specialism that helps diagnose, manage, predict and screen for genetic diseases. Genetic counsellors (GCs) work directly with patients and their families and use specialist counselling skills to support and empower patients as they incorporate information about genetics into their lives.

To find out more about what it is like to work as a GC, you can register for a new blended learning course which introduces the main roles and responsibilities of a GC, includes first-hand experiences from current GCs and provides information on how you can start a career as a GC.

Developed by the Genetic Counselling team at Great Ormond Street Hospital, this £15 course is made for anyone with a healthcare or science related degree who might be interested in becoming a genetic counsellor.

For more information and to register, please click here.  Course materials will be available from the 28th March 2022 and a live session will be held on 29th April 2022. If you have any questions please contact Sophie Marlow, STP Trainee in Genetic Counselling at Great Ormond Street Hospital, on
