Over the past decade, advances in genomic medicine and genetic technology have been dramatic. Genetic counsellors have an integral role to play in helping patients and other healthcare professionals understand the options, benefits and limitations of this rapidly changing landscape.
UBC’s two-year Master of Science in Genetic Counselling Program — the largest of the 5 programs in Canada — is dedicated to equipping the next generation of genetic counsellors with the skills, knowledge and mindset to flourish as part of an interdisciplinary team and work across a broad range of health care settings and specialties.
Please note that this year the program is pleased to announce a new one-time $15,000 entrance scholarship to domestic (Canadian) applicants. For more details, visit the Tuition and Aid section.
