Medical Genetics Fellowship

The Medical Genetics Fellowship at UCSD is a 2-year ACGME accredited program for physicians and physician scientists seeking training in human and medical genetics. Fellows enrolled in this program will gain experience in the approach to evaluation, diagnosis, and management of individuals with a wide variety of birth defects, developmental disorders and genetic conditions.

Physicians completing the UCSD Medical Genetics Fellowship have the capability of performing the wide variety of functions required of a medical geneticist in a number of settings including academic, commercial, or private practice. Because of the small size of our program, the Program Director is able to tailor training to meet the individual needs and interests of each fellow.
