Genetics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and management of hereditary disorders. Human genetics is a field of scientific research that may or may not apply to medicine, and medical genetics refers to the application of genetics to medical care. Research on the causes and inheritance of genetic disorders can be considered within both human genetics and medical genetics, while the diagnosis, management, and counselling people with genetic disorders can be considered as part of medical genetics.
