Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellowship


Yale Pathology offers a one-year, ACGME-accredited clinical program under the auspices of the Departments of Pathology, Laboratory Medicine, Genetics, and Surgery. The mission of the fellowship includes the training of individuals to become future laboratory directors and/or expert consultants in molecular diagnostics within both academic and non-academic settings. Trainees will become thoroughly familiar with the basic biologic principles of molecular genetic pathology; principles of clinical genetics; principles of cytogenetics and the interface between molecular diagnostic assays and conventional cytogenetics; principles of biochemical genetics and testing of related disorders; technical aspects of molecular genetic testing and the interpretation of test results for cancer, hematologic disorders, inherited diseases, infectious disease, identity, drug sensitivities (pharmacogenetics), and tissue typing; and administrative, safety, ethical, and quality control issues germane to the operation of a clinical laboratory service for molecular diagnostics. Faculty include Drs. Zenta Walther, Pei Hui, Karin Finberg, Alexa Siddon, Veda Giri, David Peaper, Allen Bale, Peining Li, and Laurine Bow.
