Medical Genetics Residencies
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Department of Genetics, offers a two-year Medical Genetics Residency program to prepare physicians for Board Certification in Medical Genetics. The program consists of 18 months of broad-based, clinically-oriented medical genetics activities including Pediatric Genetics and Metabolism Clinics, the Pediatric Genetics and Metabolism Division Consult Service, the Department of Internal Medicine Genetics Consult service and breast cancer and GI/general cancer clinics, and the Obstetrics Prenatal Diagnosis clinics. There will also be 3 months of laboratory rotations in the Cytogenetics Laboratory, the Molecular Diagnosis Laboratory and the Biochemical Genetics and Metabolism Laboratories. Three months of elective time are available for research, manuscript preparation, or rotation on another service to obtain more in-depth training or expertise in a particular organ system or subspecialty area of interest. A third year, primarily devoted to research, is strongly recommended for all Medical Genetics Residents, who will receive assistance in identifying potential funding during the first year of their residency experience. Candidates may apply for the Medical Genetics Residency after completing two or more years of primary specialty training. Most applicants will have completed an ACGME-accredited residency in Pediatrics, Internal Medicine or Family Medicine. Applicants are encouraged to send a curriculum vita and three letters of recommendation to the address indicated below. Interviews and commitments for positions usually occur 6-9 months prior to the entry date of July 1.
