The mission of the Genetic Counseling Graduate Program of the University of Cincinnati (UC) and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is to maximize the academic, clinical, research, and professional development of genetic counseling students.

Our goal is to prepare program graduates to provide high-quality client-centered culturally competent care, contribute to the advancement of knowledge and improved care through research, create new interdisciplinary niches, incorporate available genomic discoveries into practice, and serve as leaders in the genetic counseling field.

The Genetic Counseling Graduate Program is a good choice for students who value an academically challenging curriculum that is well balanced in the major areas of genomic sciences, counseling skills and research. Our program values diversity, critical thinking and teamwork. We strive to provide opportunities for students to develop the tools to pursue diverse professional paths and explore their individual interests.
