LIU Post Genetic Counseling Graduate Program

Mission Statement

The LIU Post GCGP is committed to developing a new generation of genetic counselors with the knowledge and skill to help patients make the best decisions. With a diverse, interdisciplinary academic and clinical faculty, the two-year Masters program is geared toward students who desire a rigorous and comprehensive training in the field of clinical genetics. Skills learned through classroom-based didactics pave the way for students to enter their clinical rotations for “real-world” training. Additionally, both classroom work and numerous supplementary activities ensure that students will be exposed to expanded roles in genetic counseling in addition to traditional, clinic-based careers.
