Medical Genetics

Overview

The Duke University School of Medicine fellowship programs in Medical Genetics and Genomics include the following specialty areas:

The goal of the Medical Biochemical Genetics program is to provide specialized training in the field of inborn errors of metabolism, for MDs who have completed a residency in medical genetics and genomics.

The goal of the Clinical Biochemical Genetics and Laboratory Genetics and Genomics programs is to train MDs, or scientists with a PhD in genetics or a related field, to become clinical laboratory directors.

These programs are housed in the Department of Pediatrics in the Division of Medical Genetics (Medical Biochemical Genetics and Clinical Biochemical Genetics), and the Department of Pathology (Laboratory Genetics and Genomics), in the Duke University School of Medicine. We are dedicated to training the next generation of clinical and laboratory geneticists and have trained learners in these programs for over 30 years.

At the Duke Department of Pediatrics, we believe that diversity and inclusion are key drivers of institutional excellence that can accelerate our ability to innovate and solve complex problems.
