Genetic Counseling Training Program

Meet a Graduate

JHU/NHGRI Genetic Counseling Training Program (GCTP) alumni in the below-listed locations are available to meet with interested Fall 2011 applicants. Meeting a graduate provides the chance to learn more about the GCTP, and may help when deciding whether to apply. An informational meeting may also provide the Admissions Committee with additional information about applicants because the alumnus will send the office a short note about the meeting, which will be included in the application file.

Meeting a graduate does not substitute for interviewing with members of the Admissions Committee. Interviews with the Admissions Committee are held by invitation only.

To meet a graduate in one of the following locations, please contact our office to obtain contact information for a graduate:

Barbara Bowles Biesecker, M.S., Ph.D., C.G.C.
Associate Investigator, Social and Behavioral Research Branch
National Human Genome Research Institute, NIH

On receiving a graduate's contact information, it is the applicant's responsibility to contact the graduate and schedule a mutually agreeable meeting time and place. The meeting can take place at the graduate's workplace, a coffee shop, etc. Meetings should take place in-person and not over the phone.

Meeting a graduate is optional. Applicants who do not meet a graduate are not penalized.
