Genetic counseling is the application of all the genetic information for clinical genetics. As genomic information is advancing rapidly and has immediate clinical significance, there is a shortage of consultants in this field and has raised the need to train more genetic counselors in Israel. At the Department of Human Molecular Genetics and Biochemistry, Sackler School of Medicine, Tel Aviv University these advanced methods are incorporated in research, and enable our program to train genetic counselors and expose them to the most innovative information. The goal is to provide genetic institutes with the best-trained conselors.
The program is based on the faculty members teaching at the Graduate School of Medicine, the members of the clinical staff in hospitals and genetic institutes and on genetic counselors.
