The Division of Genetics is more than ever before providing rare disease diagnoses for families in need with advanced clinical genetic testing.  We provide on-site and telemedicine options for clinical evaluation and provide an inpatient consultation service available every hour of every day.  As a learner within our division, you will gain valuable experience in a variety of multi-disciplinary clinic options for all ages, including skeletal dysplasia, autism spectrum disorder, cardiovascular genetics, complex care, adult genetics, and more.  Advances in molecular genetic technology has allowed for faster and more comprehensive testing.  

Our faculty are committed to education, research, and the community.  The Medical Genetics residency program continues to thrive and graduated two fellows in 2023.  We routinely host genetic counseling students, medical students, residents, and fellows in our inpatient and outpatient encounters.  Our faculty are also involved in a variety of research protocols and clinical trials.
