Medical Genetics Residency
Miller Children’s Hospital is affiliated with the University of California, Irvine (UCI) to provide the five-year combined Pediatrics/Medical Genetics training program.
The resident devotes a total of two and a half years to pediatrics and two and a half years to medical genetics:
The first year is usually focused primarily on pediatrics
The next three years alternate between pediatrics and medical genetics for a period of three to six months each
— The pediatrics/genetics residents’ rotations are identical to the categorical genetics residents, except for an additional six months of genetics time
— This extra six months is expected to be devoted to research or training in a specialized area of genetics in which the resident intends to launch their career
The last year is exclusively medical genetics
At the end of the program the trainee should be eligible to take both the Pediatrics boards and the Genetics boards.
This program requires application through the Matching Program in Pediatrics/Medical Genetics.
