Academic Course Work

Genetic counseling students take didactic classes in the areas of human genetics, prenatal genetics, cancer genetics, statistics and research methodology, developmental biology, and ethics.  There are also several courses that focus on the psychosocial aspects of genetic counseling, making for a well balanced curriculum. The majority of course work is completed in the first year. Clinical rotations begin in the spring of the first year and become the main focus of the second year.  Thesis research also features prominently in the second year of study. Specific course information can be found at the bottom of this page.
