MDGEN 607 - Independent Studies in Genetic Counselling

★ 3 (fi 6) (variable, 6 weeks) To provide students currently training in a Genetic Counselling graduate program with insight and direct experience into the role of a genetic counsellor through research into key topics in the area, as well as observation and participation in genetic counselling sessions. The course involves meeting with the instructor daily, observing and participating in counselling sessions. Two cases will be randomly selected for formal write-up and presentation. Students will also learn to critique a suitable medical genetics journal. Finally, a final creative assignment of the student’s choice (ex. Patient pamphlet) will be completed. Course is graded based on presentations, written assignment and counselling performance. Open to students in a graduate program for genetic counselling, with permission of the course instructor.
