Medical Genetics and Genomics Fellowship

medical geneticsThe Department of Pediatrics' Division of Medical Genetics in collaboration with the Department of Pathology and ARUP Laboratories offers an ACGME-accredited two-year fellowship (with the possibility of an extra year of research and case review) in medical genetics.

Fellows spend two years in clinical rotations, including training in the general outpatient genetics clinics, inpatient consultations, and subspecialty and laboratory rotations. Opportunities exist for exposure within a subspecialty practice including craniofacial, cardiology and neurology-based settings. Fellows will have significant experience with the evaluation and treatment of inborn errors of metabolism and biochemical laboratories.

Areas of expertise among the faculty include neurofibromatosis, hereditary hearing loss, cardiovascular malformation, skeletal dysplasia, birth defects, epidemiology, developmental biology, dysmorphology, lysosomal storage disorders and X-linked mental retardation syndromes. The experience of this program is enriched by the great diversity of presentations and conscientious efforts the faculty take in mentoring trainees in medical genetics.

This training program satisfies the requirements for the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics examination in Medical Genetics.
