Internal Medicine/Medical-Genetics Combined Residency
The Departments of Medicine and Genetics and Genomic Sciences offer an innovative five-year residency program, approved by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Medical Genetics, that integrates traditional Internal Medicine training with comprehensive training in Medical Genetics and Genomics.
The combined track is designed for two distinct categories of candidates:
- Those interested in becoming clinical leaders in medical genetics and genomics who want to translate the rapid advances in this field into real-life therapies for patients with complex genetic disorders.
- MD/PhD students who wish to develop translational or clinical research programs in fields affected by the rapid pace of genetic innovation and discovery.
Following completion of this program, candidates will be board-eligible for both Internal Medicine and Medical Genetics. Note that the Internal Medicine/Medical Genetics Combined Residency has a separate NRMP number from regular residency program in Internal Medicine. Please contact Salvatore Cilmi, MD, or George Diaz, MD, Co-Directors of the Med-Genetics Program with any questions.
