Laboratory Genetics and Genomics (LGG) Fellowship

The University of Michigan offers a two-year fellowship in Laboratory Genetics and Genomics (LGG) that is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), which leads to the eligibility for certification by the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG). 

We are looking for a fellow candidate that holds a Ph.D. in either genetics or a related field(We do not offer the fellowship to candidates with a M.D. or D.O.).

The LGG Fellow is appointed as a Post-Doctoral Fellow. The salary is consistent with the NIH salary scale.

The training takes place in the Michigan Molecular & Genomic Pathology Laboratories. The integrated training occurs in the Clinical Cytogenetics Laboratory, Michigan Molecular Genetics Laboratory and the Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory.   

Program Mission:

To graduate leaders in clinical laboratory genetics and genomics who can direct and interpret both clinical cytogenetic and molecular genetic analyses in a broad range of genetic disorders, including both inherited and acquired conditions

Program Aims:

  • Develop skilled clinical laboratory geneticists who seek lifelong learning and scholarship to improve the health of patients and their families.
  • Provide exemplary clinical genetic testing that is safe, and patient centered.
  • Nurture compassionate clinical laboratory geneticists.
  • Encourage diversity in perspectives and backgrounds.
  • Promote an environment that emphasizes trainee’s initiatives and wellness.
