Division of Translational Medicine and Human Genetics

Faculty members of the Division of Translational Medicine and Human Genetics teach at virtually all levels of education throughout the School of Medicine.

In conjunction with the Department of Medicine, the Division offers a 5-year combined residency in internal medicine and clinical genetics. The division also has a major role in the Medical Genetics Residency, sponsored by The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

The Division now offers a Pharmacogenetics Fellowship which aims to prepare the trainee for an independent research career in the area of pharmacogenomics and precision medicine. The fellow will obtain a Certificate in Precision Medicine with an opportunity to obtain a master’s degree.  Learn more

Faculty members are also involved in the education of Penn graduate students in the Biomedical Graduate Studies Program and students in the Schools of Dental Medicine and Nursing. They also participate in both the didactic and clinical teaching, and research mentoring of students in the genetic counseling master's program at Arcadia University.

In addition to the clinical preceptorship available to Penn medical students, students from other medical schools may arrange for rotations of one month. Learn more about the visiting student clerkship program
