A clinical geneticist is a doctor who applies the knowledge of genetics to real-life situations experienced by patients. Self Reflection and Recommendation
This is a good career choice for someone if they like to be able to help people.If you want to know the information the research has discovered, not do the research yourself, but share it with others to help them, then this is a good career choice for you. I think that this would be a good choice because I love genetics and I like helping people by using my knowledge. So this is a career choice I would defiantly recommend for someone who wants that.
