Advances in genetic and genomic technology are creating a radical shift in the ways in which we conceptualise health and illness. The roles for genetic counsellors are likely to expand rapidly over the next few years, so we have designed an inquiry-focused curriculum that is responsive to the rapid changes in the field and has had extensive input from genetic counsellors across Australasia.
