Specialist registrars

All clinical genetic specialist registrars are doctors who have undertaken several years of postgraduate training in general medicine or paediatrics and have completed their membership examinations (MRCP or MRCPCH). Many of our trainees also have higher research degrees. 

Our trainees have the chance to experience each sub-speciality within genetics over a four-year training programme, during which they will lead clinical consultations, manage inpatient referrals, shadow consultants, attend multi-disciplinary meetings, deliver teaching, conduct audit and be involved in genetic research. The main areas of focus during the training programme are: paediatrics, dysmorphology, cancer genetics, cardiac genetics, neurogenetics and prenatal genetics.
