Abstract: Recent progress in genetic medicine is remarkable and seems to be getting ahead of the general population. For a proper application of genetic medicine to people, genetic counseling is essential. There are few institutions that can provide sufficient genetic counseling in Japan. In response to a proposal by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare to establish a genetic counseling system, Nagasaki prefecture started the genetic counseling model project in 1999 and entrusted Nagasaki University Hospital to become its core, a genetic counseling center. At the same time, Nagasaki University Hospital set up the Genetic Counseling Unit as an independent clinical division to respond the social needs. We describe here the course and current status of the trial to establish a district-adhered genetic counseling system in recent two years in Nagasaki prefecture.
