Genetic Counseling Licensure

On May 7, 2019, Georgia became the 28th state to enact a bill providing for licensure of genetic counselors. As of January 1, 2020, all genetic counselors practicing in the state of GA will be required to hold a license. Licensure provides title protection such that consumers can be assured that when they make an appointment with a genetic counselor in the state of GA, that clinician has been suitably trained in genetics. Only individuals who qualify for a license are eligible to use the title “licensed genetic counselor,” “genetic counselor,” or other insignia/designation that would imply that the individual is licensed as a genetic counselor. Consumers are encouraged to look for this designation when making an appointment for genetic counseling.


Continuing Education Opportunities

Every fall the Georgia Cancer Genetics Network hosts a full day continuing education conference for providers of cancer genetics services with Catagory 1 CEUs available. The meeting location alternates between Atlanta and other cities across the state.
