ARUP Laboratories (www.aruplab.com) is a non-profit, University of Utah-based, national clinical and anatomic pathology reference laboratory that provides a full range of medical tests, including an impressive array of genetic tests. They have been actively involved in the training of UUGPGC students since the program’s inception. There are currently nine genetic counselors employed by ARUP. The laboratories are also the site for a 3-week full-time rotation for second year UUGPGC graduate students allowing them the opportunity to have hands on training on the principles and practice of genetic testing and non-traditional genetic counseling.
Thank you, ARUP Laboratories, for your generous donation and continued support of our program!
