Clinical Biochemical Genetics Fellowship
The clinical biochemical genetics fellowship program will allow the trainee to perform and interpret biochemical analyses. Instruction will be given on
basic and advanced diagnostic techniques relevant to the diagnosis and management of human biochemical genetic diseases. Experience with a broad range
of testing and disorders including follow-up newborn screening, lysosomal storage disorders, congenital disorders of glycosylation, fatty acid oxidation
disorders, organic acidurias and creatine biosynthesis disorders will be covered. Training will also include a basic understanding of the integration
of molecular data into biochemical genetic testing.
An individual completing the fellowship program will possess the skills required for certification by the ABMGG including:
- The ability to supervise and direct the operations of a clinical biochemical genetic diagnostic laboratory.
- The application of biochemical techniques to the diagnosis and management of genetic biochemical/metabolic diseases.
- The etiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations and management of human inherited biochemical conditions.
- The ability to appropriately interpret and communicate biochemical laboratory results as a consultant to other clinicians, genetic counselors or directly
to patients in cooperation with a clinical staff.
Applications for the 2019 Fellowship Program are currently closed.
Applications for the 2020 Fellowship Program are due by August 1, 2019 and should include the application form,
CV, statement of intent, and three letters of recommendation. Materials should be submitted via email to Leta Tribble, PhD.
