In order to be eligible for admission into the residency, candidates must fulfill the following criteria:

  1. Must have an earned degree from an approved or recognized school of medicine or osteopathy.
  2. Satisfactory completion of at least 1 years in an ACGME approved clinical residency.
  3. Our residents receive much of their funding through the National Institute of Health. In order to be eligible for this funding, an applicant must be a United States citizen, or have been lawfully admitted to permanent residence at the time of application. We do not currently sponsor any types of visas for trainees. Therefore, adequate outside funding and visa sponsorship would be required for those who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
  4. Graduates from an approved or recognized medical school outside of the United States, Canada or Puerto Rico must present a valid ECFMG Certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates as an additional condition of eligibility.
  5. All graduates of our Clinical Genetics Residency Program will be expected to sit for the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics Examination upon successful completion of their training. The criteria for sitting for the board exam is available on the ABMGG website.

If you are interested and eligible to apply to our program please do so through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). All Medical Genetics Programs follow the fellowship timeline. For matriculation in July 2021, the match opens August 12, 2020 and Match Day is October 21, 2020.
