The outpatient pediatric genetics clinics are among the largest genetics clinics in the country and see over 3000 patients annually.

Specialty clinics within the Texas Children's Genetics Clinic include the metabolic clinic, neurofibromatosis clinic, skeletal dysplasia clinic, and the cancer genetics clinic. We also have many multidisciplinary team clinics like the Angelman Syndrome Clinic, and the Gender Medicine Program. Our department’s clinical and genetic counseling faculty also staff joint clinics with other departments at TCH including otolarynogology (otogenetics), neurology (neurogenetics/tuberous sclerosis), plastic surgery (Craniofacial/Craniosynostosis clinics).
