gcnp newsletter 2018 fall v1Since our last newsletter, our program has more than doubled in size through the addition of the eight amazing young women who make up the Class of 2020! These students were selected from an applicant pool of over 150 applicants! They also were the first class to participate in the genetic counseling match process administered by National Match Services (NMS). This process, adapted by all accredited genetic counseling programs, is comparable to the match algorithm that medical students participate in for residency. Although change can be challenging for all involved parties, we were certainly very pleased with the results. Once again, we have recruited a strong, motivated group of future leaders.
