Graduate Program

The Graduate Program in Molecular and Human Genetics provides outstanding educational opportunities for those who wish to pursue a career in research, education, and service in this field.

Residency Programs

Our Medical Genetics and Genomics Residency Programs are designed to prepare individuals for an academic career by providing an integrated experience in both clinical and experimental genetics.

Clinical Laboratory Fellowship Training

We are accredited by the ABMGG for clinical laboratory fellowship training in Clinical Biochemical Genetics and Laboratory Genetics and Genomics.

Postdoctoral Training

There are more than 100 postdoctoral trainees in the laboratories of the genetics training faculty.

Medical School Genetics Track

Through the Genetics Track, medical students will gain a deeper understanding of a broad range of genetic conditions and the complexities of genetic testing, as well as, increase their awareness of the social concerns of those affected by genetic disorders.

Medical School Research Track

The MSRT is a five year program with the goal to train M.D. graduates in hypotheses driven basic, translational and clinical research. 

Masters in Genetic Counseling Program

Offered through the School of Allied Health, the Masters in Genetic Counseling Program provides an integrated medical genetics graduate education for students seeking either laboratory or industry related genetic counseling careers.

Evenings with Genetics

Evenings with Genetics is a seminar series that is sponsored by the Department and Texas Children's Hospital. These seminars are open to the community. 

Molecular Genetics of Vision Research Program

Training new scientists who are well versed in both genetics and vision research is a top priority of this program.
