This position is for a full-time genetic counselor to join an existing 0.4 FTE genetic counselor for a combined effort of 1.4 FTE.

As a premiere leader in women's health care, Emory Clinic’s Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics is committed to providing women with the highest quality and most advanced health care for all stages of their lives, from adolescence through menopause and beyond.
