What makes Genetic Counseling students unique?
Click on the link above to see photos representing student life at UAB and in Birmingham.

“UAB Genetic Counseling students work hard in the classroom and the clinic, but they also find time to have some fun! Whether it’s competing in intramural sports, attending art classes, or enjoying one of Birmingham’s many award winning restaurants, the genetic counseling students are able to spend their free time in a city with so much to offer. Birmingham proudly hosts film and music festivals, concerts, farmer’s markets, craft breweries, shopping malls and parks in the city center. For those wanting a weekend getaway, you can get to the beach or the mountains in about 4 hours! Birmingham is a “big-little” city. Big in a sense that there is always something to do, but small enough to navigate and feel like home!”

GC Student Work
