Division of Genetic Counseling

The Division of Genetic Counseling specializes in providing information and support to individuals who may be considering genetic screening or testing, or may be at an increased risk for certain genetic conditions based on personal or family health histories.

UTHealth Genetic Counselors are specially trained, board-certified professionals who help women understand their testing options. A discussion with a genetic counselor can give women the knowledge they need to make the best testing and screening choices for themselves. Genetic counselors also provide resources and support to families throughout this process.
