The Columbia University Genetic Counseling Graduate Program emphasizes the importance of scholarly contributions and the research process. Students complete coursework to improve familiarity with the research process, understand the roles of genetic counselors in the research process, and identify and describe the growing body of research about genetic counseling. Additionally, each student undertakes a scholarly project consistent with their interests. Submission of research results appropriate for publication to a peer-reviewed journal and/or national academic meeting is strongly encouraged for each student.
