Journal of Genetic Counseling

The Journal of Genetic Counseling, the official journal of the National Society of Genetic Counselors, is a timely, international forum addressing all aspects of the discipline and practice of genetic counseling. The journal focuses on the critical questions and problems that arise at the interface between rapidly advancing technological developments and the concerns of individuals and communities at genetic risk. The publication provides genetic counselors, other clinicians and health educators, laboratory geneticists, bioethicists, legal scholars, social scientists, and other researchers with a premier resource on genetic counseling topics in national, international, and cross-national contexts. Starting in 2019, the journal is published by Wiley.

NSGC members receive free access to the journal through Wiley. In order to access the journal you must be logged in.
