In 2015 the Fisher Center sponsored the 8th annual summer cancer genetic counseling fellowship. The 10-week paid fellowship, offered through the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in Washington, DC, provided Innovative, hands on trans-disciplinary training in clinical cancer genetics and genomics, medical oncology and surgery, behavioral research, and bioethics.
Thus far, our fellows have included six newly graduated genetic counselors and two students who joined us in the summer between their first and second years of training. To read about previous fellowship experiences, click here.
The fellowship is being restructured and will not be offered in 2016.
