Genetic Counselor

GENETICS CENTER is expanding and looking for a genetic counselor to join our center in southern California. Our genetic counselors may participate in some or all of our comprehensive genetics services, including:

  • Prenatal & preconception counseling
  • Cancer genetics
  • Pediatric genetics, including subspecialty clinics, and
  • assisting with our laboratories

After initial orientation, we normally assign a counselor to tasks of their strength and interest. We have prenatal satellites throughout southern California, so different locations in this region may be accommodated.

GENETICS CENTER is led by two well-respected medical geneticists and has a team of genetic counselors as well as onsite CAP-accredited and CLIA-certified molecular genetic and cytogenetic laboratories. Our laboratories have an extensive molecular and cytogenetic test menu that includes BRCA1/BRCA2 testing, comprehensive cancer, microarray, single gene and known mutation testing, FISH analysis, and various cytogenetic studies. GENETICS CENTER is approved by the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), which attests to the strength of our cancer genetics program. GENETICS CENTER is also a Prenatal Diagnosis Center through the State of California Prenatal Screening Program.

Providing education is an important part of GENETICS CENTER’s involvement in the medical community, and our genetic counselors are actively involved in these efforts. Our center is closely affiliated with two major hospitals within walking distance and provides clinical and laboratory services to many other hospitals throughout southern California. We are also a rotation site for genetic counseling students.

GENETICS CENTER has been an integral part of the medical community for over 29 years. Our locations have a pleasant working environment with strong team support, and service is our primary motivating factor. We offer competitive salary and comprehensive benefits. Experienced counselors and new graduates are welcome.

Requirements: Applicants must be Board Certified or Board Eligible and able to apply for a State of California Genetic Counseling License (full or temporary).
