Clinical fellowship training in Medical and/or Pediatric Genetics as a single program or in conjunction with training in Pediatric Endocrinology (and/or internal medicine and Endocrinology) is offered at the Program in Developmental Endocrinology & Genetics (PDEGEN).
Training in genetics is offered through PDEGEN's participation in the Medical Genetics fellowship programs of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) led by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI).
A combined medical genetics and pediatric endocrinology fellowship that leads to certification by both the American Board of Medical Genetics and the American Board of Pediatrics Sub-Board on Pediatric Endocrinology after 5-6 years of training (after approval of each Board) is also sponsored by the PDEGEN.
Graduates of a pediatrics or combined pediatrics/internal medicine ACGME-approved residency programs in the United States that are either citizens or legal residents (green-card holders) of this country are eligible. We encourage applicants with previous Ph.D. training or graduates of an MD/PhD program to apply for this unique fellowship which aims at bridging these two very relevant subspecialties of pediatric medicine: genetics and endocrinology.
This is an exciting opportunity for a physician-scientist in-training who wants to take advantage of the exciting opportunities offered by the NIH Clinical Center, the hundreds of sate-of-the-art research laboratories at the NIH campus, and the commitment of NIH leadership in training initiatives on translational research.
The program is headed by Dr. Constantine A. Stratakis, MD, DMedSci, Head, PDEGEN, NICHD, NIH, & Director, Pediatric Endocrinology Training Program, NICHD, NIH, 10 Center Drive, Building 10, Room 9D42, MSC 1830, Bethesda, MD 20892, tel. 301-496-6683, fax. 301-480-0378, Email:
