The UAB Genetic Counseling program has incorporated a unique curriculum designed to prepare students to be competitive and successful genetic counselors.  In addition to core classes designed to teach genetic counseling skills and medical genetics, our curriculum includes unique opportunities to learn phlebotomy skills, Spanish for medical professionals, research and laboratory genetic counseling skills, and much more.  Our students all complete a plan II project where they are able to design and implement a project of interest and contribute to the field.  Our setting is also designed with access to many facilities at UAB, including options for on-site and off-site rotation sites and laboratory experiences.
