The Laboratory Genetics and Genomics fellowship is intended for those who wish to direct or co-direct a Clinical Molecular Genetics and/or Clinical Cytogenetics laboratory.

Full and satisfactory participation in the training program will provide board-eligibility to sit for the Laboratory Genetics and Genomics specialty examination of the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG).

Participation on a regular basis will be required in various laboratory activities, including specimen handling, work-up of cases, molecular genetic and cytogenetic procedures, results reporting, quality assurance, record keeping, budgeting, proficiency testing, laboratory inspections and accreditation, interfacing with other clinical laboratories, and communication with referring clinicians and genetic counselors.
