Module 2: Communication in Genetic Counselling (20 hrs)

Coordinator: Dr CP Lee (Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology)


The aim of this module is to equip the students with communication skills specific to the setting of genetic counseling. The module consists of two parts. The first part should be taken before Module 4 (where clinical attachment is required) so that the skills learned can be used during clinical attachment. Each student will have one of his/her face to face consultation taped during the clinical attachment in Module 4. Clips of the video will be selected for presentation in the workshops in the second part of this module, which will take place after the Module 4 is completed. Workshops with active student participation are used for most of the teaching in this module.
