How Much Does A Genetic Counselor Make Per Year? Average Genetic Counselor Salary

Genetic counselors generally earn excellent salaries and on average earn up to $100,000 per annum. Genetic counselors are health professionals who offer treatment in genetic disorders, molecular biology, psychology and psychological issues. They also deal with ethical and legal issues involved with medicine. There are over 2,000 genetic counselors in the United States and most are women under the age of 40. However, the field is now getting open to all sections and age. Genetic counselors are board certified by the American Board of Genetic Counseling. The National Society of Genetic Counseling (NSGC), incorporated in 1979, is the only professional society dedicated solely to the field.
