Resident Training in Medical Genetics and Genomics
The Medical Genetics and Genomics Residency Programs at Baylor College of Medicine are designed to prepare individuals for an academic career by providing an integrated experience in both clinical and experimental genetics. Training activities in clinical genetics and research are coordinated through the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics. Our programs prepare the trainee to care for both pediatric and adult patients with cytogenetic, biochemical, and developmental diseases, and gain laboratory experience in a chosen area of medical genetics and genomics.
Our programs enjoy preeminence in the genetics community and are approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Our programs are also supported by a training grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. We are currently approved for a total of 12 residents.
