Supplemental Experiences

Extending learning beyond classroom walls
Deepening your educational experience

Experiential learning is an active process that accelerates the comprehension of classroom material, provides context to bridge the gap between theory and practice, and strengthens critical thinking skills. The UCSF Genetic Counseling Program is proud to offer impactful learning opportunities outside of the typical classroom and clinical training experiences to help students build their professional competency.
