Information Sessions for Prospective Students

The University of Toronto’s MSc Program in Genetic Counselling will be hosting various sessions throughout the year geared towards those interested in learning more about the profession and/or the University of Toronto (U of T) program.

Information Day

This event occurs once a year in November. Its focus is to provide prospective students with an overview of the profession, the program, information on the application process and an opportunity to ask current students and alumni questions during an interactive Q&A session (i.e. break-out rooms). Registration for this event is required and will open in October. To be added to the email list, please email
