Residency/Fellowship Program in Genetics

The University of Colorado School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics and Children's Hospital Colorado offers a two-year fellowship/residency in genetics. The goal of the training program is to provide physicians who have completed at least two years of training in pediatrics, or other primary specialty, with in-depth training in clinical genetics that will prepare them for certification by the American Board of Medical Genetics and a career in clinical or academic medicine.
