The curriculum blends cutting-edge didactic training in human/medical genetics and psychosocial counseling, along with extensive clinical training opportunities.   A novel aspect of the program is the focus internship, which provides an in-depth practice and research experience designed to embrace the ways in which the profession of genetic counseling is evolving.
