The HMS Genetics Training Program in conjunction with Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital provides combined residency training with Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Additionally, a Maternal Fetal Medicine/Genetics Fellowship is offered through Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Internal Medicine/Genetics Combined Residency

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Combined Residency in Internal Medicine and Medical Genetics offers a training option which qualifies trainees to board certify with both the ABIM and the ABMG. Participating institutions include Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Children’s Hospital Boston, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Harvard Medical School.

Pediatrics/Genetics Combined Residency

We offer a combined 4 or 5 year training program in pediatrics and medical genetics. Graduates of the program will be fully qualified and board eligible in both pediatrics and medical genetics. Participants will gain a broad based and integrated training that takes advantage of the excellence in medical care and medical research offered by the Harvard and Boston Medical Center hospital systems. The entire first year is dedicated to pediatrics training. Children’s Hospital Boston and Boston Medical Center are the primary training locations for pediatrics. In years 2 through 4, trainees alternate every 3 months between pediatrics and medical genetics. The fifth and final year is dedicated to research in the trainee’s area of interest in medical genetics.

Maternal Fetal Medicine/Genetics Fellowship

We offer a four year fellowship program in maternal fetal medicine and medical genetics. Expertise in genetics and MFM provides a unique opportunity for specialization in clinical care and research during fellowship as well as during subsequent career development. The combined Maternal Fetal Medicine/Medical Genetics fellowship is a collaboration with Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and the HMSGTP with rotations at BWH, BIDMC, Boston Children’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital. This fellowship fulfills the requisite case load for completion of genetics boards, clinical experience required for MFM boards and the research requirements for both boards. In years 1 through 3, trainees alternate every 3-6 months between MFM and medical genetics clinical training. The third and fourth years are dedicated to research in the trainee’s area of interest in MFM and medical genetics.
