Residency Programs

The Johns Hopkins Medical Genetics Residency Programs provide Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited clinical residency and comprehensive research training in medical genetics. We offer a categorical training track and three combined training tracks with pediatrics, internal medicine and maternal fetal medicine, respectively.

Categorical residency: This three-year curriculum includes 18 months of concentrated clinical genetics training and 18 months of individualized curriculum with comprehensive mentored research training in genetics. After a successfully completion of this program, trainees are qualified and eligible for certification of American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG) in clinical genetics.

Combined pediatrics and medical genetics residency: This four-year curriculum is structured according to the requirements of The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) and ABMGG. Residency trainings in pediatrics and medical genetics are fully integrated in this program. Trainees are highly encouraged to complete additional mentored research trainings in medical genetics. After a successfully completion of this program, trainees are qualified and eligible for certifications in ABP and ABMGG.

Combined internal medicine and medical genetics residency: This five-year curriculum is structured according to the requirements of American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and ABMGG. Residency trainings in internal medicine and medical genetics are fully integrated in this program. Mentored research training in medical genetics is an integral part of the combined residency. After a successfully completion of this program, trainees are qualified and eligible for certifications in ABIM and ABMGG.

Combined maternal-fetal medicine fellowship and medical genetics residency: This four-year curriculum is unique for physicians who have completed an accredited residency in obstetrics and gynecology and wish to integrate their maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) fellowship with medical genetics residency training. This combined program fulfills the board requirement for both clinical and research training for MFM and medical genetics leading to certification by both the MFM Board and ABMGG.
