Peer Issues in Genetic Counseling

Spring

In this course, students will present, discuss and examine challenging genetic counseling cases and professional issues which arise from their 2nd year rotation experiences.  Each week, several students will be required to present cases to the class, discuss their role in the case and discuss issues involved in the case that may have impacted the clients and/or the genetic counselor and student.  Students are also required to comment on cases presented by others.  We will examine cases in the context of several models of genetic counseling and within the context of the genetic counseling code of ethics.  We will consider the role of supervisor in the training of genetic counselors.  We will also consider the role of continued “supervision” beyond graduation.
