Clinical and Laboratory Internships 

Specialty Internship (Winter, Year 2)

Genetic counseling students will attend 2 three-week mini clinical rotations and one week doing additional clinic-related activities.

Each mini clinical rotation will be focused on a particular specialty area of genetics with a variety of clinical opportunities depending on the specialty.  Students will have some patient-related genetic counseling responsibilities as well as some observational experiences.

Examples of mini clinical rotations include neurology, cystic fibrosis, pediatric specialty and women's health.  In addition, students will be expected to work through a case book, and present a synthesis of medical literature on a topic of their choosing.
