Molecular Genetic Pathology

The Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) fellowship is a sub-specialty training program leading to potential certification by the American Boards of Pathology and Medical Genetics on successful completion of this ACGME-accredited fellowship and subsequent board examination.  The overall goal of the program is to specifically train fellows in the practice of diagnostic molecular pathology, the use and interpretation of molecular laboratory techniques, and in the independent administration and directing of a molecular laboratory.

The Molecular Genetic Pathology program is managed in the Department of Pathology. Find more information on this fellowship, including how to apply, at the Molecular Genetic Pathology website.
