Summer Rotations

Summer rotation allows you to take on the role of genetic counselor at a comfortable pace and provides deep appreciation for the clinical, research and administrative capacities of the genetic counselor. Students often choose unique settings which allow them to experience a new area of the country or even travel to another country.

My summer rotation provided an exciting clinical experience working in a healthcare system in a part of the country that I had never been before. The experiences I had in Dallas, Texas, proved to be invaluable throughout my training and growth as a genetic counselor.
