Program Description

The Medical Genetics Residency at Baylor College of Medicine is 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 program prepares 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.

Our program enjoys preeminence in the genetics community and is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACMG). Our program is also supported by a training grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
