Module 4: Certificate Course for Genetic Counselling (Course for Board of Genetic counselling entrance exams Level I & II)

The advent of genetic tests has had a tremendous effect on clinical diagnosis. Diseases, which were difficult to diagnose earlier, are now aided by genetic screening tests. These tests are new and not very well known among clinicians. More important, the implications of the results must be explained to the patient and relatives in a professional manner, since most of the times, the results have tremendous emotional impact on families. The education and counselling accompanying genetic testing is provided by genetic counselors in all developed countries, as this is essential for the decision-making process regarding testing and dealing with test outcomes.

Who Requires Genetic Counselling?

The traditional emphasis on providing information coupled with supportive counseling is primarily for people wanting to know whether the disease is hereditary, whether other family members are susceptible and also to know if a therapeutic treatment option is right for them. Parents having one genetically abnormal child, or frequent abortions, generally want to know if the new pregnancy will give them a healthy child.

Genetic counseling is required when,

  1. Any Familial Disorder
  2. Cancer genetics
  3. Infertility, Artificial Reproduction Techniques and pre-implantation genetics
  4. Neurogenetics and psychiatric genetics
  5. Common adult disorders (e.g., cardiac diseases, diabetes, BP, asthma,etc)
  6. Genetics in the primary care setting – birth defects and mental retardation
  7. Industry, including commercial laboratories and pharmaceutical companies

Role of a Genetic Counselor:

Genetic counselors must not only convey to individuals and their families information about diseases or problems they harbor but also the consequences of testing and the potential for therapeutic intervention, also enumerate the risks to other family members both in present and future generations. This is laden with uncertainty and raise difficult ethical, legal and social issues. Genetic counselors play a key role in educating health providers and assisting with establishing standards of practice. Trained genetic counselors also provide a liaison for health professionals and patients to communicate with policy makers, the media and the public about new and emerging medical/ genetic technologies and services.

Eligibility: Masters in Genetics / Biochemistry / Biotechnology / Life Sciences / Microbiology/Nursing or MBBS/BDS with a First Division

Certificates will be provided at the end of the course.
