Medical Genetics and Genomics Residency


The main emphasis is on acquisition of knowledge and insight in general principles of General Genetics and Biochemical Genetics. Residents participate in a wide variety of clinic opportunities including - General Genetics Clinics, Biochemical Genetics, NF/Ras Pathway, Craniofacial, Cardiovascular Genomics, Ocular Genomics, Precision Genomics, and rotates on the inpatient service at UC Davis Children's Hospital. Learners begin to develop critical skills in medical knowledge/care/management and the differential diagnosis, systems-based practice, communication skills/professionalism/team practice, and practice-based learning and improvement.

The beginning of year two, the learner will have the basic fund of knowledge and practice to begin gaining autonomy in decision-making. By the second half of Year 2, the residents will have a solid knowledge base to independently formulate a differential diagnosis and manage the care of hospital-based patients. Elective clinics available to the resident including Neuromuscular Disease, Fragile X , 22q11 deletion syndrome and Huntington Disease.
