UCLA Intercampus Medical Genetics Training Program
The UCLA Intercampus Medical Genetics Training Program utilizes the clinical and research resources of the affiliated campuses and teaching hospitals (Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, UCLA Center for Health Sciences, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Children's Hospital of Orange County). This program is open to academically oriented applicants with an MD, PhD, DDS, or equivalent degree. It offers a wide variety of research training opportunities in molecular, biochemical, immuno-, cancer, cyto-, somatic cell, population and clinical genetics.
Recognizing the importance of developing a diverse workforce in the field of genetics, the UCLA Intercampus Medical Genetics Training Program is committed to fostering diversity among our trainees. We solicit and encourage applicants who will strengthen our diversity. The Program defines diversity broadly, to include race, culture, ethnicity, veteran status, place of origin, religion, mental or physical disabilities, age, gender, sexual orientation and other characteristics. We believe that the learning experience is enhanced for all by including individuals of different backgrounds and perspectives, and that this fosters the development of physicians who will care for patients who themselves comes from a wide array of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
Our program is accredited in Clinical Genetics and Medical Biochemical Genetics for clinicians and Clinical Biochemical Genetics, Cytogenetics, and Clinical Molecular Genetics for both PhDs and MDs interested in research and laboratory training. Our Genetics programs meet all of the certification requirements of the American Board of Medical Genetics and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
