  • About the Human Genetics Fellowship

    The Division of Human Genetics at Cincinnati Children’s is the largest pediatric genetics program in the nation. Along with our pediatric service, we provide high-level care to adults through the Connective Tissue Clinic, Prenatal Program and Hereditary Cancer Program. Thanks to this combination of size and diversity of services, we can offer fellows unparalleled training and experience in this exciting field.

    We have been approved by the American Board of Medical Genetics to provide fellowship training in clinical biochemical genetics, clinical molecular genetics and clinical cytogenetics. These are two-year programs, or one-year programs for fellows already board certified in a genetics specialty.

    The Division of Human Genetics currently offers three Clinical Genetics fellowship programs: Clinical Biochemical Genetics, Clinical Cytogenetics and Clinical Molecular Genetics. It is possible to combine the Clinical Cytogenetics and Clinical Molecular Genetics fellowships into a three-year program to be eligible to sit for both board exams. The Clinical Biochemical Genetics fellowship is not usually offered as a combined fellowship with the Clinical Cytogenetics program; however it can be combined with the Clinical Molecular Genetics fellowship.
