The UCLA Intercampus Medical Genetics Training Program utilizes the clinical and research resources of the affiliated campuses and teaching hospitals (Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, UCLA Center for Health Sciences, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Children's Hospital of Orange County). This unique intercampus environment provides a diverse patient population, research interests and teaching styles. Our location in Southern California provides easy access to beaches, museums, concerts, theme parks -- pretty much anything you would want or need. Take advantage of this great city and what each campus has to offer.

Recognizing the importance of developing a diverse workforce in the field of genetics, the UCLA Intercampus Medical Genetics Training Program is committed to fostering diversity among our trainees. We solicit and encourage applicants who will strengthen our diversity. The Program defines diversity broadly, to include race, culture, ethnicity, veteran status, place of origin, religion, mental or physical disabilities, age, gender, sexual orientation and other characteristics. We believe that the learning experience is enhanced for all by including individuals of different backgrounds and perspectives, and that this fosters the development of physicians who will care for patients who themselves comes from a wide array of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
