The Medical Genetics Fellowship/Residency Program at the University of Nebraska Medical Center is a two-year program certified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We offer comprehensive training in patient examinations, diagnosis, decision-making, therapeutics and counseling necessary to provide care for patients of all ages with genetic or possible genetic diseases.
The goals of this program are to
Provide clinical experience with a variety of adult and pediatric patients and families with or suspected genetic disease in order that trainees learn the various approaches to clinical and laboratory evaluation, management and counseling; and
Provide opportunities in clinical, counseling, and laboratory research so that trainees are exposed to the diverse areas of medical genetics
Patients are referred from Nebraska and the surrounding states. Fellows will have weekly clinics in genetics, craniofacial, autism and metabolic disorders. Monthly, the genetics staff has satellite clinics throughout the State of Nebraska, which fellows will attend. Fellows will also spend time in the cytogenetics and molecular genetics laboratories. The call is at-home call.
Applicants must have completed an ACGME-accredited training program and be board eligible in pediatrics, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, or other relevant specialty. Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Matching Service (ERAS).
