Workshop – Exploring a Career in Genetic Counseling

Are you looking for a career that combines your love of science, sociology, psychology, and helping people? Then you should consider a career as a Genetic Counselor!

The genetic counseling profession is rapidly expanding and diversifying. The demand for genetic counselors in clinical, teaching, administrative, commercial, private practice, and consulting environments will continue well into the 21st century!  Genetic Counselors have specialized training (a Master’s degree) with over 30 training programs in the United States and Canada. Come and join us for this three hour workshop designed to help you learn about a career in Genetic Counseling, the types of students training programs are looking for, and tips for developing a strong graduate school application.

Speakers include: The Program Directors for the Stanford Genetic Counseling Master’s Training Program and the California State University-Stanislaus-UCSF Master’s Training program, current and newly graduated genetic counseling students, and genetic counselors with varying career tracks.
