similar jobs to a geneticist

I am a student that thrives in my STEM classes. I also have good social skills, especially with children and people with special needs. My dream job would be a genetic counselor that meets with families who are about to have a child with a genetic disorder, to meet with those families in the future to check in, and to study the genes of individuals. I fear that there is not a job that allows me to do all three. #stem #geneticist

STEM meets writing

I am a student that thrives in STEM classes. When identifying a struggle I face at school, I would have to say I struggle to find the motivation and focus to write essays. I am a decent writer, but I simply don't enjoy writing. If I were to become a geneticist, or something similar, would I be required to write reports/essays? In addition, what are some medical/stem careers that require a lot of writing? #stem #geneticist #medicine
