Formal Clinical Internships (Summer, Fall and Winter, Year 2)

The purpose of the internship during the second year is for students to function, with supervision, as the primary genetic counselor in a variety of clinical settings. During this second year internship, students will acquire cases for their logbooks for program accreditation purposes.

Students will be required to complete 4 seven-week rotations.

Our program offers several options for pediatric, adult, reproductive and hereditary cancer clinics. Furthermore, students rotate through the Metabolic Clinic at Children's Hospital of Michigan which provides the follow-up for all positive newborn screens within the State of Michigan.

With the permission of the program directors, students may choose to do one or two rotations as an elected away rotation the summer between their first and second years.
