Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellowship

Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellowship

The Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellowship Program sponsored by the University Of California San Diego Department of Pathology is an ACGME-accredited one-year program, and we offer one position each year in the Division of Laboratory and Genomic Medicine.

The overall goal of the UC San Diego Medical Center Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Program is to prepare trainees for a successful career in molecular pathology.

At the time of completion of the fellowship, trainees will be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to assume the directorship of a clinical molecular pathology laboratory and to continue with a pattern of lifelong learning in this field. During the course of the one year program, MGP fellows will participate in the day to day operation of molecular genetic pathology laboratories performing and interpreting a variety of clinical tests. Although the work of fellows will proceed under the supervision of an attending faculty member, a gradually increasing degree of independence and responsibility will be granted and be commensurate with his or her ability and level of training.

The MGP fellowship is open to MD graduates with prior residency training in Pathology (either AP, CP, or combined AP/CP) or Medical Genetics.
