Medical Genetics Residency

The University of Pennsylvania and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia support a primary residency in medical genetics. This 3-year program prepares individuals for board certification in clinical genetics by the American Board of Medical Genetics. Applicants must have successfully completed at least 2 years in another primary residency (e.g., internal medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, obstetrics, etc.) by the time they enter the Medical Genetics Residency. The curriculum of the Medical Genetics Residency can be tailored depending on the resident's preparation and interests. Learn more about the primary residency program.

Residents who have previous training in internal medicine will have much more intensive involvement in the genetics of cancer, adult-onset disorders, and neurogenetics. The program director is Ian Krantz, MD. The program contact is Regina Harvey (
