As of the 2023-2024 application cycle, the PGCGP is offering more frequent, more informal opportunities to connect with and learn from our volunteer Genetic Counselors.  This is available to any prospective student wishing to learn more about the profession or about the GC Program application process!  These opportunities may include the following:

In previous years, an official application to the PGCGP, specific acceptance requirements, formal assignment to a Mentor, and structured meetings was the layout of our program - which was only available to prospective students with specific needs.  Now, anyone can participate in the PGCGP!

If you are interested in speaking with a PGCGP Genetic Counselor regarding their experiences, please send us an email ( with the following information:

Also, keep an eye on our Events Calendar!  We will keep this updated with events that Genetic Counseling Programs host, as well as our own internal PGCGP virtual events (such as Case Conferences).

*Please note:  If a Volunteer GC recognizes, after phone/video/email discussion, that a prospective student may benefit from more formal/structured Mentorship, that can be arranged.

Our team is excited to work with you!
