Medical Genetics Residency

The Medical Genetics Residency program is open to MD applicants who have completed a minimum of two years of residency in an ACGME-accredited program (usually pediatrics or internal medicine, although other disciplines may also be acceptable). The program duration is two years with 18 months of clinical training. Residents are involved in the evaluation, management and counseling of patients of all ages in the general medical genetics clinic, specialty clinics, and inpatient consultation service. In the remaining six months, the resident rotates through the Cytogenetics, Molecular Genetics, and Biochemical Genetics laboratories and works on a research project with an identified mentor. 

Applications for residency should be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service.
