The Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences at Yale School of Medicine is seeking a board eligible/board certified genetic counselor to fill a full-time position. This individual will join a dynamic team working in a high-volume prenatal diagnostic service as part of a world-class Maternal Fetal Medicine academic faculty practice. The genetic counselor will work directly with one other genetic counselor and a large staff of physicians, sonographers, nurses, and social workers to provide counseling to a high-risk and diverse patient population. Common indications for referral include abnormal maternal serum screening, cell-free DNA, and ultrasound findings, personal and/or family history of genetic conditions, prior pregnancies with fetal anomalies, pre-chorionic villus sampling (CVS) and amniocentesis education, history of recurrent miscarriage, and interest in discussing assisted reproductive technologies such as preimplantation genetic testing. At present, most genetic counseling sessions are conducted via video telehealth. This is currently a hybrid position, and the candidate will predominantly be working on-site in New Haven, CT with the option of working remotely up to two days per week. There is an active Fetal Therapy program, as well as several other multidisciplinary programs that contribute to a diverse clinical experience. The genetic counselor will interpret and evaluate patient/family medical histories, coordinate genetic testing at in-house and specialty laboratories; interpret medical/genetic tests; communicate results to patients, families, referring physicians, and other specialists; recommend follow-up care and arrange referrals to medical specialists; and participate in the development and implementation of innovative approaches to providing genetic counseling services. This individual will also work directly with genetic counseling interns, residents, and fellows as part of their reproductive genetics training and have the opportunity to collaborate with clinical research studies.
Yale University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, and members of minority groups are encouraged to apply.
