Journal of Genetic Counseling CEU Program

The Journal of Genetic Counseling CEU Program is designed to help genetic counselors stay abreast of research occurring within the field, and provide additional learning and CEU opportunities in an on-demand, self-paced format.

In 2021, the NSGC Podcast Series is teaming up with the Journal of Genetic Counseling CEU Program to bring journal articles to life. The Podcast Subcommittee will incorporate article authors and/or content into the podcast episodes by interviewing authors and specialists to further explore the information in the Journal of Genetic Counseling. Learners will earn additional CEUs and be offered a different lens into article content.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify areas of current research occurring within the field of genetic counseling 
  2. Distinguish how genetic counseling skills and theories can impact both patient care and other healthcare professions 
  3. Assess the theories related to the practice of genetic counseling
