Applying to Genetic Counseling Graduate Programs Information Event

The Iowa Institute of Human Genetics (IIHG) is hosting an information event on Personalized Genomic Medicine: Applying to Genetic Counseling Graduate Programs. At this information session a panel of genetic counselors will speak about their personal experience applying to genetic counseling training programs as well as their daily activities and role in personalized genomic medicine. This opportunity is a great way for students to discuss first hand the application process, job growth and ask questions in a small group setting. 

Please note we can only speak to our personal experience and cannot evaluate or advise which graduate program may be the best fit for you.
