Admissions

The educational experience we offer is enhanced by an expansive curriculum, exposure to world-renowned faculty and clinical investigators, our focus on compassion and listening, and a desire to promote genetic education and access. We encourage applicants to explore the many research, international, community, clinical, and extracurricular opportunities available at our affiliated medical school and other programs as they consider a future in genetic counseling.

New York City is a big draw for our students, as is the vibrant neighborhood of Washington Heights, where the program is located. We encourage our students to learn about and from the culture, history, politics, resources, and needs of this diverse yet medically underserved area.

Applying to graduate school can be daunting. It can also feel impersonal. However, we pledge to personalize and simplify the process as much as possible. While academic metrics do matter, we do our best to look at each applicant as an individual and provide fair consideration.

We look forward to receiving your application.
