All University of South Carolina system institutions will be closed through the end of the spring semester. Columbia campus virtual instruction will continue through the conclusion of final exams in May. Details can be found on the coronavirus landing page.
Our dedicated and caring faculty will help you through your time in our program. We're
also fortunate to have clinical rotation faculty across the Southeast to help our
students pursue hands-on experience in a variety of specialties.
Our Program Director
Janice G. Edwards, MS, CGC
Our program director is an experienced genetic counselor, educator and Founding President
of the Transnational Alliance for Genetic Counseling, an international network of genetic counselor educators. Building consensus among
multiple perspectives has been a theme in her work as she has also facilitated collaborations
among national organizations around prenatal diagnosis and genetic carrier screening.
With over 35 years in clinical practice focused on prenatal genetics and more recently,
Huntington disease, Janice is committed to genetic counselor education. She has been
recognized with Teaching Advancement Awards at the University of South Carolina and
by the National Society of Genetic Counselors with their Regional Leadership and the
International Leader Awards. She has directed genetic education conferences and symposia
regionally, nationally and internationally, most recently developing a week-long immersion
course, BootCamp: A Short Course in Genetics and Genomics, to prepare thought leaders in reproductive genetics.
