Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellowship

Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellowship

The ACGME-accredited Molecular Genetic Fellowship in the Department of Pathology currently has three funded fellowship positions per year.

The Stanford Molecular Genetic Pathology program serves the adult and pediatric populations at Stanford and also sees referrals from Northern California and the rest of the nation.

The program is interdisciplinary and includes participation of faculty in the Departments of Pathology, Medicine, Pediatrics (Division of Medical Genetics) and Genetics. Laboratory rotations include formal training in Molecular Genetic Pathology, Biochemical Genetics, Cytogenetics, and Molecular Microbiology/Virology.

Fellows will be trained in assay development, quality assurance, and results interpretation in the Molecular Pathology Laboratory at Stanford and the Kaiser-Permanente Regional Molecular Diagnosis Laboratory, a large reference laboratory for the Kaiser system which offers a testing menu that is complimentary to that of Stanford.
