Application Procedure

The UCSF medical genetics residency is a two-year program for physicians who have already completed at least two years of training in an ACGME- accredited residency program in another primary specialty, e.g., pediatrics, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pathology, family practice. In addition, our residency program is also the medical genetics portion of the UCSF Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) fellowship training program, a joint program between the UCSF medical genetics residency and the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences. The MFM fellows participate completely in the UCSF medical genetics residency and complete the same rotations and clinics as medical genetics residents.

Applications will be processed through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). If you are interested in applying for residency training in medical genetics at UCSF, please submit your common MyERAS application form along with the following documents via the ERAS system:

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal Statement
  • Minimum of three recommendation letters
