Welcome to the Genetic Counselor Educators Association (GCEA)

GCEA is a professional organization formed to promote collaborative interactions between individuals involved in genetic counseling graduate education and to support high standards of practice.

Originally founded in 1992 as the Association of Genetic Counseling Program Directors (AGCPD) for those in program leadership, AGCPD evolved in 2024 to become GCEA in recognition of the important roles that many individuals play in the education of genetic counseling trainees. We invite those interested in genetic counselor education to join GCEA.

The GCEA Vision

Advancing quality in genetic counselor education

The GCEA Mission

The mission of the GCEA is to build a diverse community of graduate-level educators to define best practices, facilitate resource-sharing, and foster collaborations to promote equitable, inclusive, and just education for genetic counselor.

You can’t change your genes, but you can change your lifestyle and, in turn, reduce your risk factors. Family history doesn’t have to be your destiny.
