Program Design

The University of Cincinnati Genetic Counseling Program incorporates elements of didactic coursework, clinical rotations, and research throughout the course of study.

  • From the beginning, students are involved in clinic. A seven week clinical internship is completed during the summer after the first year.
  • Research/thesis projects begin during the autumn semester of the first year and continue all the way through the program.
  • Students take science courses such as human genetics, embryology, epidemiology, teratology, and clinical genomics as well as courses in ethics and numerous courses in counseling.
