Pediatrics-Medical Genetics Program

A special agreement exists with the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG) whereby an applicant may fulfill the training requirements of both the ABP and the ABMGG by completing joint training. Guidelines for combined training are available by contacting either board or by visiting this website. A revision of the guidelines was approved by both ABP and ABMGG effective July 2014. The revised guidelines allow joint training to be completed in 4 years. The training in programs must also be approved prospectively by both the ABP and the ABMGG.  All training should be completed in the same combined training program; any deviation must be approved prospectively by both the ABP and the ABMGG.

An applicant completing the 5 year program may take the certifying examination of the ABP in the fifth year of training provided that 30 months of required pediatric residency training have been successfully completed. An applicant entering training in 2014 or later who completes the 4 year program may not take the certifying examination of the ABP until all 4 years of training have been successfully completed.

The revised guidelines for training are effective for those entering training in July 2014 or after. Any trainee who began or will begin training before July 1, 2014 must fulfill the current five year requirements.
