Prospective Student Events

Meet the Students NightImage announcing Meet the Students Night

Wednesday, October 20th - 7:00 PM Eastern time
Join us for a virtual event for prospective students and meet five of our 2021 graduates and five of our current second year students.  They will share their experiences and answer your questions about applying to the program, coursework, clinical and research opportunities, life in Philadelphia, and more.  We'll use breakout rooms to create smaller groups so everyone will feel comfortable asking questions.

Open Houses & Webinars

We typically host two Open Houses each year, usually in late summer and in November, and invite prospective applicants to campus to meet program leaders and current students.  Dates are announced on the website in advance of each session, and those unable to attend in person are provided with a remote connection. 

Since we can't meet in person during the pandemic, we will be hosting webinars for prospective students throughout the fall.  Our next event will be a Meet the Students Night in October.  We will share plans for all events as the dates are confirmed. 

For an overview of the program and admissions information, please view the video of the slides and audio from our November 2019 Open House here.


Summer Internships

In summer 2022 we will again be offering three full-time, paid (40 hours/week @ $15/hour = $3,600) summer internships for undergraduate students from populations/groups that are under-represented in genetic counseling.  The internships will be six-weeks long (from mid-June to the end of July). This experience will provide students interested in a career in genetic counseling with exposure to a broad range of clinical genetics specialties, research and laboratory work, shadowing in multiple clinical settings, and opportunities for one-on-one interviews with genetic counselors.

The deadline to apply will be in early March and the results will be announced in mid-April.
