Meet the Clinical Geneticists
- Clinical geneticists work as medical specialists within the genomics multidisciplinary team in a hospital.
- They see a wide variety of patients. For example, they might see a child with a suspected genetic disease or they might see an expectant mother or couple to discuss risks to a pregnancy. They might also see adults living with a genetic disease diagnosis or questioning their risk of genetic disease.
- For all patients they see they advise on diagnosis, treatment and management of individuals as well as their wider family members, who may also be affected.
- Many of the conditions seen by clinical geneticists are very rare and the role therefore requires lots of research into the latest medical literature, as well as working in collaboration with genomics specialists around the world to share expertise in particular conditions and ensure that every patient receives the best care.
