Genetic counseling in the United States is consolidating and expanding its professional identity at a point in time when major biotechnological advances are rapidly being incorporated into clinical genetic practice and major shifts in the American health care system are being carried out under a mandate of cost-containment.
External factors-biomedical advances, political and economic contexts, managed care organizations, health economics criteria and exclusionary strategies of related health care occupations-combined with internal factors-training and certification requirements, specialization, leadership talent and ability to adapt to changing conditions-will strongly influence the structure and scope of genetic counseling services in the coming years.
