Laboratory Genetics and Genomics Fellowship

Laboratory Genetics and Genomics Fellowship

The Laboratory Genetics and Genomics fellowship is intended for those who wish to direct or co-direct a Clinical Molecular Genetics and/or Clinical Cytogenetics laboratory. It is open to both M.D. and Ph.D. trainees. Instruction and experience is provided in all aspects of diagnostic laboratory genetics. While the emphasis of the program is on the diagnosis of heritable genetic disorders, trainees will be exposed to various somatic applications as well. The fellowship experience will cover a wide range of molecular genetic and cytogenetic techniques. Full and satisfactory participation in the training program will provide board-eligibility to sit for the Laboratory Genetics and Genomics specialty examination of the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG).

Participation on a regular basis will be required in various laboratory activities, including specimen handling, work-up of cases, molecular genetic and cytogenetic procedures, results reporting, quality assurance, record keeping, budgeting, proficiency testing, laboratory inspections and accreditation, interfacing with other clinical laboratories, and communication with referring clinicians and genetic counselors.
