Laboratory Fellowship Programs - Clinical Biochemical Genetics

Clinical Biochemical Genetics: We currently do not have dedicated funding for clinical biochemical genetics.


Laboratory Fellowship Programs - Laboratory Genetics and Genomics (LGG)

NEW! Laboratory Genetics and Genomics (LGG): (formerly Cytogenetics/Molecular Genetics)  The ABMGG has decided to merge the training of cytogenetics and molecular genetics into a single specialty.

All new trainees will enter an LGG fellowship program and not Cytogenetics or Molecular Genetics individually. LGG training will be 24 months in duration (with no allotted time for research) and both traditional and new cytogenetic and molecular techniques will be integrated throughout the training. Please visit the ABMGG site for more details and updates.

We are currently accepting applications for a July 2018 start date until October 1, 2017. Due to the volume of applications we received, we cannot individually confirm receiving all materials until after the initial review. Applicants to be considered for the next step will have until October 31, 2017 to provide any missing information/documentation. Please refrain from contacting the program/training directors. See below for what should be included in your initial application.
