Research Training

Because one of the major goals of the program is to train students to conduct social, behavioral and policy research in the field of genetic counseling, a thesis project is required for graduation. It is expected that the theses will be of publishable quality. The program includes coursework (See: Program of Study) that provides students with the training and experience necessary to develop, conduct and report on research. Students are provided with a generous research budget to conduct their thesis project, as well as technical assistance. Program faculty have diverse backgrounds and are experienced in addressing research questions that are currently being asked in the field of genetic counseling.

Important research questions include:

To begin to answer such questions, researchers with clinical experience in genetic counseling and expertise in social science research methods are needed. Training such researchers is a goal of this program.
