Background: With the rapid growth of the genetic counseling profession, organizations are often adding new genetic counselors (GCs) to their teams.

Purpose: We sought to determine how long it takes genetic counselors to become stabilized in a new position, as indicated by change in documentation time (how long it takes to write clinic notes).
