Masters In Genetic Counseling Established | The Emory Wheel

Masters In Genetic Counseling Established | The Emory Wheel:


'via Blog this'


The Emory University program linked above sounds interesting. There is really a need for this for physicians and others. However, a class of 10 students in a 22 month program will hardly supply the demand. A 2008 study stated that only about 10% of physicians claimed to know how to order a genetic test.


Guess I'm going to have to explore what other programs exist. Below is what I have found so far.
