Master's Program in Human Genetics
and Genetic Counseling

In 2008, Stanford accepted its first class into the MS in Human Genetics and Genetic Counseling degree, and the classes of 2010 and 2011 have now graduated!  Be a part of this exciting opportunity and help shape our GC program!  Join a world renowned Genetics department located at a top 10 medical school and in one of the most beautiful and diverse areas of the country.  Our program will utilize state of the art genomics resources that are already well developed at Stanford, and train you to work with patients in a wide range of settings and from a multicultural background. 

Stanford's curriculum is set up on the quarter system, and students will take 6 academic quarters of work, and conduct clinical rotations full time through the summer between their first and second years.  The course distribution (2012-2013 Curriculum) will allow students to take 1-3 elective courses in an area of their choice, such as Spanish language training, cancer genetics, pediatrics, reproductive health issues, or biomedical ethics.

2011: We are proud to have received full accreditation from ABGC for 6 years!
