Molecular Genetic Pathology


A one-year, ACGME-accredited clinical program under the auspices of the Departments of Pathology, Laboratory Medicine, Genetics, and Surgery, with a second, optional year in research.

Support fo a second, research year will be based on a review by the faculty of a research program proposed by the fellow. Research may focus on developmental and/or applied clinical research projects, such as development of novel molecular tests; basic research relevant to disease mechanisms, with relevance to diagnosis; studies of clinicopathologic correlations; or regulatory, ethical, economic, or informatics issues related to molecular diagnostics. Research using this year may be conducted under the guidance of any faculty advisor within the University and in any of a wide variety of laboratories that offer an opportunity for investigation of topics pertinent to molecular genetic pathology and molecular diagnostics. There is also opportunity for more extensive physician-scientist training combined with the one ear of clinical training in MGP. More extensive training, which can also result in obtaining a PhD degree for those who currently hold only the MD degree, or an MH degree for those interested in a more translation/clinical research career, is carried out through the Immunohematology Research Training Program ("
