The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine offers a one-year accredited fellowship in Molecular Genetic Pathology that provides intensive training in all aspects of molecular diagnostics, including DNA and RNA analysis in cancers, genetic disorders, infectious disease, and identity testing.  The fellow will learn diagnostic skills during exposure to internal cases as well as a large number of referral cases sent to UCLA for consultations.  The fellow interacts with Pathology and Laboratory Medicine residents, as well as fellows, residents and faculty in the Medical Genetics and Hematology-Oncology services, among others.  The fellow participates in teaching, conferences, and genetics clinics.  Fellows are encouraged to develop scholarly or research activities.  One fellowship position is offered each academic year. 


Support is commensurate with the candidate's level of training.
