The Division of Genetics and Genomics at Boston Children’s Hospital provides training, observerships and CME presentations for the clinical community. For providers seeking consultations, genetic counseling or testing services, we are pleased to announce our “genetic counselor on page.”
The genetic counselor on page is available Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., to serve providers both inside and outside Boston Children’s Hospital. The counselor can be reached through beeper #5337 from inside Boston Children’s, or by calling 617-355-4697 from outside the hospital or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Counselors can provide different levels of service depending on the need. In most instances, if the family wishes, the counselor on page can see the patient and arrange for testing the same day.
The Division of Genetics and Genomics participates in the Harvard Medical School Genetics Training Program. This program, one of the oldest and largest in the country, provides post-graduate training in clinical genetics, as well as laboratory fellowships, for candidates who already have an MD or PhD. It is accredited by the ABMG in all areas of training: Clinical Genetics, Clinical Biochemical Genetics, Clinical Cytogenetics and Clinical Molecular Genetics.
The Division of Genetics and Genomics is also affiliated with the Brandeis University Genetic Counseling Program. Genetic counseling students are able to observe genetic counselors in clinical and research roles at the hospital. Students can also complete their pediatric clinical internship in the Clinical Genetics Program.
