MDGEN 407 - Independent Studies in Genetic Counselling

An interactive course designed to provide undergraduate students insight into the role of a genetic counsellor through research into key topics in the area, as well as observation of genetic counselling sessions, if available. The course involves meeting with the instructor once a week for a two hour discussion. Students will each potentially observe patients, depending on availability of patients and the flexibility of the students' schedules. Each week students will alternate between writing and presenting a report on the weekly case or providing a short presentation on an ethical clinical issue. All students will participate in the discussion of the case. Students will also learn to critique a suitable medical genetics journal. Course is graded based on presentations, written assignments and participation. Open to undergraduate students with permission of the course instructor.
