To be eligible to apply for the Genetic Counseling Laboratory Internship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., applicants must currently be enrolled in a master's degree genetic counseling program.
Applicants are selected based on personal qualities and skills represented in an application essay and the quality of references. The amount of exposure to the role of the laboratory genetic counselor that is alternatively available to the applicant is also taken into account, in standing with our goal of increasing exposure for qualified students who may not have other access.
U.S. citizenship or permanent immigrant status is required for admission to the Genetic Counseling Laboratory Internship.
