Cytogenetics Molecular Pathology

The cytogenetics rotation at West Virginia University is designed to instruct trainees in genetic testing in a tertiary care, academic setting. As they evaluate patient specimens, physicians in training are instructed in acquisition and preparation of specimens for cytogenetics tests, diagnostic evaluation, and ancillary studies. By providing residents with increasing responsibilities and duties, as their level of training increases, the teaching faculty hope to instill in the resident the skills and tools necessary to develop a life-long course of continued professional development.
