Published Friday 23 September 2022

MOPH announced the addition of “Genetic Counselor” to the list of auxiliary medical professions

Qatar ​​Ministry of Public Health announced the addition of “Genetic Counselor” to the list of auxiliary medical professions organized by the Department of Health Specialties at the Ministry in accordance with Law No. 8 of 1991, in response to the urgent need to benefit from this profession in planning for a better family healthy future and reducing the health risks that may affect members of society as a result of genetic factors.

The State of Qatar is one of the few countries in the Middle East region that issues a license for the profession of genetic counselor in recognition of its importance. The genetic counseling specialty is one of the rare and unique medical professions, especially in our region. The genetic counselor is a healthcare professional with higher degrees, and clinical training in the fields of medical genetics and genetic counseling.

The genetic counselor:

  • studies personal and family history
  • advises patients and their families on possible genetic risks and diseases
  • requests and interprets appropriate genetic tests
  • explains their effects on patients and their families
  • guides patients and their families and enables them to understand the basics of medical and genetic genetics
  • supports families psychologically and socially to make informed decisions and choices and adapt to their health condition
  • makes the necessary referrals to medical specialties and ensures follow-up throughout their lives.
