The increase in demand for genetic counselors is one reason why other community health organizations supported the creation of the genetic counseling degree program at UNMC.

Why choose our program?

Our program is the first genetic counseling program in Nebraska and one founded on the strengths of the College of Allied Health Professions and the Munroe-Meyer Institute.

A personal introduction from our inaugural program director:
I think fondly on my own graduate program, as this is truly your professional beginning. To that end, I invite you to be a trailblazer with us in this new program. Whether you are a native Nebraskan or considering us from out-of-state, we offer a wonderful environment of innovation, teamwork, excellence, accountability, courage, and healing. These are the values of our medical center, where you will thrive as a student and future colleague.

We invite your interest and look forward to hearing from you.
