Genetics Workforce Assessments
Since 2015, NCC has conducted a genetics workforce assessment every four years to better understand the capacity of the workforce. We are thrilled to launch this year’s survey with our partners: American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG), Genetic Metabolic Dietitians International (GMDI), International Society of Nurses in Genetics (ISONG), and the Society of PAs in Genetics and Genomics (SPAGG).
If you are a member of these organizations and practice in the US, please check your inbox for the survey link! Didn’t receive the survey, please contact the organization directly. Have questions about how the survey data will be used? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Genetic Counselors, NCC has partnered with the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC), to integrate our workforce questions into the 2023 Professional Status Survey. Please contact NSGC for questions about the PSS.

In response to a request from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the funder of NCC, NCC distributed a survey in 2015 to all genetics providers (geneticists, genetic counselors, metabolic dietitians, genetic nurses, and other genetics providers) to understand what the barriers to access were from the perspective of providers. Results from this survey were published in Current conditions in medical genetics practice by Maiese et. al in Genetics in Medicine.
Highlights from the Article
In response to a request from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the funder of NCC, and legislation from Congress seeking to assess the genetics workforce, NCC distributed a survey in 2019 to geneticists to understand the workload of the geneticist workforce. Results collected from the clinical geneticists who responded to the survey were published in The 2019 US medical genetics workforce: a focus on clinical genetics by Jenkins et. al in Genetics in Medicine.
