In this course, genetic counselors will discuss common threads from a variety of unique genetic counseling cases and the lessons from these cases that can be applied to other genetic counseling sessions. Each module of this course will include a genetic counselor expert who will present a review of a rare disease, provide insight on current issues surrounding the condition and discuss the testing and counseling process for the rare disease.

Additionally, each module includes a patient perspective, in which a patient will speak to his/her experience with the conditions and the counseling process.
