Summary or Abstract : Under-representation by racial/ethnic minorities (R/EMs) has been an issue in the genetic counseling field since the 1990s. A better understanding of genetic counseling awareness and career consideration may help to increase the number of genetic counseling training applicants from R/EMs. This study sampled high school and college students to examine their awareness and perceptions of genetic counseling as a career. Ethnicity, sex, socioeconomic status (SES), and interest in biology were found to be significant predictors of genetic counseling awareness; interest in psychology, previous knowledge of genetic counseling, enrollment in high school or junior college (as opposed to enrollment or completion of a 4-year college degree program), and interest in biology were found to be significant predictors of consideration of genetic counseling as a career. Implications of these findings for minority recruitment are discussed..
