The professional organizations in genetic counseling have come together to form the Genetic Counseling Advanced Degree Task Force (GCADTF) to discuss whether the profession should adopt a clinical doctorate. The GCADTF is comprised of representatives from the American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC), the Accreditation Council of Genetic Counseling (ACGC, formerly the accreditation arm of ABGC), the Association of Genetic Counseling Program Directors (AGCPD), the Canadian Association of Genetic Counsellors (CAGC), the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) and three genetic counselors at-large who were randomly selected from among the members/diplomates of the stakeholder organizations.
Please see below for information about the Task Force and resources compiled by the GCADTF to provide education around the clinical doctorate degree:
Find members of NSGC through the Find A Genetic Counselor search. Genetic counselors work in university medical centers, community clinics, public health departments, diagnostic laboratories, and many other health, education, and related agencies.
