Welcome to the UCLA Intercampus Medical Genetics Training Program, a post-graduate training program. This program is open to academically oriented applicants with an MD, PhD, DDS, or equivalent degree. It offers a wide variety of research training opportunities in molecular, biochemical, immuno-, cancer, cyto-, somatic cell, population and clinical genetics. Four campuses participate in the program: Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, UCLA, Harbor-UCLA, and Children's Hospital Orange County. The program is supported in part by a National Research Service Award Fellowship (T32) grant from the National Institutes of Health.
The UCLA Intercampus Medical Genetics Training Program remembers with fondness our program's founder, David L. Rimoin, M.D., Ph.D. 1936-2012. Please read the ACMG's tribute to Dr. Rimoin and his work.
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 come from a wide array of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
