Those parents with a child with some congenital defect should be aware of the factors responsible of such condition, and if it is possible that future children could be affected similarly. A strategy for attaining the excellence in the genetic training is proposed according to the indicators of the 2000-2006 Genetic Program and it was also evaluated the effectivity of this program including the ethical and bioethical aspects. A descriptive retrospective and cross sectional study was carried out in Pinar del Rio municipality during 2000-2003 and 2004-2006. Fifty families from this municipality were chosen by means of a non-probabilistic sample and they were assisted in the Department of Genetics due to many reasons, they were surveyed evaluating those variables related to the effectivity of the Genetic Assessment, agreement with the service and so on.
