MGC students will have the opportunity to pursue an elective rotation in his or her second year of training. Elective rotations must be approved by the Program Leadership and will be overseen by the Practicum Coordinator.
If the student is on target in their acquisition skills and accumulation of cases, the rotation site may include non-core cases and/or non-clinical experiences. The rotation experience must contribute to the overall depth and experience of the genetic counseling training. Students may also return to a previous site for a more in depth experience.
In order to be approved for an elective rotation, students must submit an elective rotation proposal to the Practicum Coordinator no later than five weeks prior to the start of the anticipated rotation.
