The Yale Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellowship is a joint activity of the Departments of Pathology, Laboratory Medicine, and Genetics at the Yale School of Medicine and of the Dept of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at the Connecticut VA Medical Center. Dr. Zenta Walther is Director of the program, which includes as faculty Drs. Walther, Jeffrey Sklar, J Greg Howe, Henry Rinder, Pei Hui, Gary Stack, Brian Smith, Peining Li, and Allen Bale.
Fellows spend one to two years in training. The major clinical year includes work in all major subareas of molecular genetic pathology (Mendelian disorders, immunologenetics, neoplasia, hematology, infectious diseases, cytogenetics) and the second year is directed toward research in developmental diagnostics.
Individuals previously certified through their Yale experience now hold academic positions at Yale, Harvard, Tufts, and the University of Bolognia. Candidates should have completed their training in AP, CP, AP/CP or medical genetics (ABMG) at the time of commencing the fellowship. This is an ACGME accredited program.
