Summer Internships

In summer 2023 we will again be offering 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 is February 1st and results will be announced in mid-March.
