WSU/DMC offers a two-year fellowship in cytogenetics. This program is open to individuals with a US earned doctoral degree (MD, DO, PhD or equivalent; see Eligibility and Requirements, for international applicants). If the candidate has already successfully completed a Medical Genetics Residency, only a one-year fellowship is required. The clinical cytogenetics fellow receives extensive cytogenetics laboratory training. After successful completion of the program, the clinical cytogeneticist would have completed the requirements to direct a clinical cytogenetics laboratory with the training necessary to analyze and interpret cytogenetic abnormalities and act as a consultant for physicians regarding laboratory diagnosis for a broad range of cytogenetics conditions. In addition, the fellow would be eligible to sit for the certification examination in Clinical Cytogenetics offered by the American Board of Medical Genetics.
