Postby DRBABU » Tue Aug 23, 2011 3:18 am

HI,
I AM A Ph.D IN ENTOMOLOGY AND HAVING UNDERTAKEN MOLECULAR BIOLOGICAL TECHNIQUES COURSE IN Ph.D PROGRAMME. NOW I WANT TO BECOME A GENETIC COUNCELLOR. I ORGANISE AND COORDINATE PATIENTS WHO ARE RECOMMENDED FOR GENETIC TESTS BY DOCTORS. I HAVE SUFFICIENT KNOWLEDGE ON GENETIC DISEASE BUT DO NOT POSSES ANY CERTIFICATE OR DEGREE ON GENETIC COUNCELLING. CAN I BECOME A GENETIC COUNCELLOR FOR RECOMMENDING A PATIENT FOR A GENETIC TEST ? OR ANY DISTANT LEARNING GENETIC COURSES AVAILABLE SO THAT I FINISH AND AUTHENTICALLY BECOME A GENETIC COUNCELLOR.

Have you looked in your area for programs in Genetic Counseling? These are some of the schools with programs in Genetic Counseling. You will need to contact them to find out whether they have long distance education
