Biomedical research continues to reveal deep genetic roots for many common health conditions—from heart disease to cancer to cystic fibrosis. For people confronting these diseases, genetic counselors serve as guides and advocates, helping patients navigate their family health history, understand genetic testing, and provide personalized medical recommendations.
With a growing need for more highly trained experts in this field, The University of Texas MD Anderson UTHealth Houston Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences connects two powerhouses of innovation and education to fill this gap. Our Genetic Counseling Program excels in training versatile counselors by immersing students in the depth and breadth of genetic counseling practice.
