Abstract [en]

There is no Master's level education for genetic counseling in Sweden, meaning that genetic counselor professionals have very different backgrounds. Hence, there is a need to harmonize the quality of genetic counseling and introduce standards for practice. The Swedish Society for Genetic Counselors and the Swedish Society of Medical Genetics and Genomics collaborated to determine professional requirements and a career pathway, defining three vocational levels within the genetic counselor profession. We report here an individual educational pathway leading up to eligibility for certification as a genetic counselor in Sweden.
