Laboratory Genetics & Genomics

As of 2017, the American Board of Medical Genetics & Genomics has merged the training  of  cytogenetics  and  molecular  genetics  into  a  single  specialty  named  “Laboratory Genetics & Genomics” (LGG).

This fellowship is open to individuals with an MD, DO, PhD or equivalent degree and is designed to provide the trainee with the ability to direct a molecular and cytogenomic diagnostic laboratory. Support for fellows in this program must be discussed prior to applying by contacting the LGG Fellowship Director, Dr. Dorschner.

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.
