This is the 24-month curriculum that provides the foundation of LGG fellowship training. The curriculum is designed to allow the fellow to take increasing responsibility that ultimately leads to independent practice. The fellow rotates in the Cytogenetics and the Molecular Genetics and Diagnostic Labs. For each rotation the fellow works with well-trained lab staff and is trained by qualified laboratory geneticist in new test validation, technique troubleshooting, results interpretation, report writing, and communication with lab members and ordering provider especially through challenging cases. During the first year of training the fellow completes two courses (HG 541 Molecular Genetics-Fall Term) and (HG 542 Molecular Basis of Human Genetic Disease-Winter Term). The fellow also attends multiple weekly or monthly didactic curriculum throughout the two-year training.
