Emerging Genetic Counseling Specialties

Graduate Seminar—Fall

The Emerging Genetic Counseling Specialties course provides students with the knowledge and skills to provide genetic counseling services in emerging specialty areas before clinical training opportunities become readily available. Currently, the course examines the complexities of neurogenetic diseases and cardiovascular genetics in clinical practice. For each specialty, students develop knowledge and genetic counseling skills through lectures, case studies, and role-play.
