CAGC Meet a GC Program

As of October, 2022, the Canadian Association of Genetic Counsellors (CAGC) is offering prospective students a chance to connect with current genetic counsellors. For more details, please visit the CAGC website:

Exposure to the profession of genetic counselling

We recognize that opportunities to gain exposure to the field may be more limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage applicants to find alternate ways of gaining insight into the field. This can include informational interviews with genetic counsellors across different practice areas, reading the Journal of Genetic Counselling to understand the issues and the research that are active in the field, and online sources such as NSGC, CAGC, Master Genetic Counselor videos and the BCCHR Mini Med School 2016 session on genetic counselling.
