Our department has served as an accredited American Board of Medical Genetics (ABMG) training site for clinical, cytogenetic, biochemical, and molecular geneticists since 1982. This program provides 2-year experience in medical genetics laboratory training in each of these areas.

We also serve as an accredited Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) training site for medical genetics and an accredited American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC) training site for our Genetic Counselor Training Program, which offers a master's degree.

A comprehensive clinical, educational and research program in human and medical genetics has existed at Icahn School of Medicine for more than 40 years. Our faculty provides comprehensive genetic testing services that are available through cytogenetic, biochemical and molecular laboratories. In addition, there are clinical genetic services and specialty programs in metabolic disease, congenital anomalies, cardiovascular genetics, cancer genetics and others as well as a program of basic and clinical research supported by more than $15 million in research grants and involving the efforts of more than 100 faculty and staff members.

We designed these innovative programs specifically to prepare the next generation of geneticists to meet the challenges resulting from the delineation of the molecular basis of inherited and common disorders. At the completion of their training, these individuals will be uniquely qualified to apply the diagnostic and therapeutic advances developed in laboratories across the nation, including molecular diagnosis, gene therapy, and gene product replacement therapy.
