Medical Genetics Residency

With the sequencing of the human genome, genetics has become an increasingly important aspect of modern medical care. The medical genetics residency program recognizes the incredible potential for health benefits stored in the genetic code.

We strive to train physicians who, through their expertise in medicine and genetics, become leaders in the application of genetic information to the healthcare of our patients.

Application process

Please contact Dr. Maureen Bocian, genetics fellowship director, for more information about applying to the program at: [email protected]

Curriculum

We have two possibilities for training in medical genetics:

  • A two-year, categorical medical genetics residency requires prior satisfactory completion of 24 months of the ACGME-accredited residency training in a specialty other than medical genetics. At the end of the program, a trainee should be eligible to take the American Board of Medical Genetics (ABMG) examinations.
  • A five-year combined pediatrics/medical genetics training program devotes 2 ½  years to pediatrics and 2 ½  years to medical genetics. Usually, the first year is all pediatrics, the last year is all medical genetics, and the middle three years alternate between pediatrics and medical genetics for periods of three to six months each. At the end of the program, the trainee should be eligible to take both the pediatrics boards and the genetics boards.

    The number and content of genetics rotations that the combined pediatrics/genetics residents do are identical to those of the categorical genetics residents except for an additional six months of genetics time. This extra six months is expected to be devoted to research or to training in a specialized area of genetics in which the resident intends to devote his or her career. This extra time is flexible but must be spent in academic pursuit.

Rotations in medical genetics are divided among the general genetics service (inpatient consultations and outpatient clinics), the metabolic genetics service and mitochondrial medicine service (inpatient consultations and outpatient clinics), the prenatal genetics service (primarily outpatient consultations), the cancer/adult genetics/specialty clinics rotations (primarily outpatient), laboratory rotations (clinical cytogenetics, clinical biochemical genetics, and clinical molecular genetics), and some electives.

We also have a strong didactic program involving a number of formal courses that are taken together with the genetic counseling graduate students.

All of these courses are taught by genetics division faculty specifically for graduate students and residents. They are geared towards basic science and clinical aspects of medical genetics, including Mendelian and non-traditional genetics, multifactorial disorders, clinical genetics and congenital anomalies, syndrome identification and dysmorphology, metabolic genetics, cytogenetics, biochemical and molecular genetics, cancer genetics, prenatal and reproductive genetics, teratology, mental retardation and developmental disabilities, applications and interpretation of genetic laboratory testing, quantitative genetics/genetic epidemiology, genetic screening, genetic counseling, and the social, legal and ethical aspects of medical genetics.

There are several division teaching conferences each week at UC Irvine Medical Center. Several research conferences also are available on the main university campus in Irvine.

Prenatal Genetic Counseling

Pregnant women may be amazed at the number and variety of prenatal tests available. Blood tests, urine tests, monthly medical exams, screening tests, and family history tracking all help to assess the health of a mom and her baby.

Genetic tests identify the likelihood of parents passing a genetic disease or disorder to their children. If your history suggests that genetic testing would be helpful, you may be referred to a genetic counselor. Or, you might choose to get genetic counseling yourself.

What Is Genetic Counseling?

Genetic counseling is the process of:

  • checking family and medical records
  • ordering genetic tests
  • evaluating the results of these tests and records
  • helping parents understand and reach decisions about what to do next

Genetic tests are done by analyzing small samples of blood or body tissues. They determine whether you, your partner, or your baby carry genes for some inherited disorders.

What Are Genes?

Genes are made up of DNA molecules, which are the building blocks of heredity. They're grouped together in specific patterns within a person's chromosomes, forming the unique "blueprint" for every physical and biological characteristic of that person.

Humans have 46 chromosomes, arranged in pairs in every living cell of our bodies. When the egg and sperm join at conception, half of each chromosomal pair is inherited from each parent. This newly formed combination of chromosomes then copies itself again and again during fetal growth and development, passing identical genetic information to each new cell in the growing fetus.

Current science suggests that every human has about 25,000 genes per cell. An error in just one gene (and in some instances, even a change in a single piece of DNA) can sometimes be the cause for a serious medical condition.

What Do Genetic Counselors Do?

Genetic tests yield complex results. Understanding what they mean is where a genetic counselor comes in.

Genetic counselors are professionals who have completed a master's program in medical genetics and counseling skills. They then pass a certification exam administered by the American Board of Genetic Counseling.

Genetic counselors can help:

  • identify and interpret the risks of an inherited disorder
  • explain inheritance patterns
  • suggest testing
  • lay out possible scenarios

They will explain the meaning of the medical science involved and provide support. If you haven't had genetic tests done yet, they may refer you to a doctor or a lab.

Who Should See a Genetic Counselor?

Most couples planning a pregnancy or who are expecting don't need genetic counseling. About 3% of babies are born with birth defects each year, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Many problems that happen are treatable. Cleft palate and clubfoot, two of the more common birth defects, can be surgically repaired, as can many heart defects.

The best time for genetic counseling is before a woman becomes pregnant. The counselor can help her understand any risk factors. But even during pregnancy, a meeting with a genetic counselor can be helpful.

Experts recommend that all pregnant women, regardless of age or circumstance, be offered genetic counseling and testing to screen for Down syndrome.

It's especially important to consider genetic counseling if:

  • a standard prenatal screening test has an abnormal result
  • an amniocentesis yields an unexpected result
  • either parent or a close relative has an inherited disease or birth defect
  • either parent already has children with birth defects, intellectual disabilities, or genetic disorders
  • the mother-to-be has had two or more miscarriages or babies that died in infancy
  • the mother-to-be will be 35 or older when the baby is born. Chances of having a child with Down syndrome increase with the mother's age.
  • there's concern about genetic defects that happen often in an ethnic or racial group
  • either parent is concerned about the effects of exposure to radiation, medicines, illegal drugs, infections, or chemicals

Meeting With a Genetic Counselor

Before you meet with a genetic counselor in person, you may be asked to gather information about your family history. The counselor will want to know of any relatives with genetic disorders, multiple miscarriages, and early or unexplained deaths. The counselor will also want to look over your medical records, including any ultrasounds, prenatal test results, past pregnancies, and medicines you took before or during pregnancy.

When you meet with the counselor, you'll go over any gaps or potential problem areas in your family or medical history. The counselor can help you understand the inheritance patterns of disorders and help assess your chances of having a child with those disorders.

The counselor will talk about risks that every pregnancy faces and risks that you personally face. Even if you discover you have a particular problem gene, science can't always predict the severity of the related disease. For instance, a child with cystic fibrosis can have debilitating lung problems or, less commonly, milder respiratory symptoms.

If more tests are needed, the counselor will help you set up those appointments and track the paperwork. When the results come in, the counselor will call you with the news and may ask you to come in for another discussion.

What Happens After Counseling?

Genetic counselors can help you understand your options and adjust to any uncertainties you face. But you and your family will decide what to do next.

If you've learned before conception that you and/or your partner are at high risk for having a child with a severe or fatal defect, your options might include:

  • pre-implantation diagnosis. This is when eggs that have been fertilized in vitro (in a laboratory, outside of the womb) are tested for defects at the 8-cell (blastocyst) stage. Only nonaffected blastocysts are implanted in the uterus to establish a pregnancy.
  • using donor sperm or donor eggs
  • adoption
  • taking the risk and having a child
  • becoming pregnant and having specific prenatal testing

If you've had a diagnosis of a severe or fatal defect after conception, your options might include:

  • preparing yourself for the challenges you'll face when you have your baby
  • fetal surgery to repair the defect before birth. Surgery can only be used to treat some defects, such as spina bifida or congenital diaphragmatic hernia, a hole in the diaphragm that can cause underdeveloped lungs. Most defects cannot be surgically repaired.
  • ending the pregnancy

Genetic counselors can share the experiences they've had with other families in your situation. But they will not suggest a particular course of action. A genetic counselor understands that what is right for one family may not be right for another.

Genetic counselors can, however, refer you to specialists for further help. Genetic counselors can also refer you to social workers, support groups, or mental health professionals to help you adjust to and prepare for your complex new reality.

What Else Should I Know?

Working with a genetic counselor can be reassuring and informative, especially if you or your partner have known risk factors. Talk to your doctor if you feel you would benefit from genetic counseling.

Many doctors have a list of local genetic counselors they work with. You also can contact the National Society of Genetic Counselors for more information.

Many diseases that affect children have very clear symptoms, testing and diagnosis. However, there are thousands of conditions that aren’t so easily identified. They require evaluation and testing at the genetic level in order to understand and manage them.

Our board-certified physicians in clinical genetics, clinical cytogenics and clinical molecular genetics help diagnose and manage the most common genetic conditions and birth defects, as well as have unique experience with very rare diseases. Using the latest genetic testing methods and with access to databases of genomic information from around the world, we work tirelessly to find answers for your family so that your child can receive the most appropriate care.

We not only diagnose genetic conditions but also provide recommendations for patients and team up with other CHOC specialists to ensure all of your child’s medical needs are being met.

Our genetic services include:

  • Diagnosis of a genetic condition by doing a complete review of the patient’s personal and family history, a complete physical examination and/or genetic testing
  • Education and understanding about how or why a condition occurred (in most cases)
  • The chances for the condition to reoccur in your family
  • The chances for other family members to have the condition or pass it on
  • Recommendations for managing the disorder
  • Resources, support and connections to other families who have a child with the same condition.
