The Medical Genetics Interest Group serves to educate DGSOM students about the current research in the field of genetics and the possible career paths in the field of medical genetics. We achieve this goal by hosting lunchtime and evening lectures throughout the year and also offering shadowing experiences in the medical genetics clinic. Through these events, we teach students to recognize genetic influences in common medical disorders and navigate the complex social and ethical implications of genetics in medicine. We encourage them to understand the importance of genetics in specialties throughout medicine and to understand the importance of maintaining a working knowledge of genetics throughout their careers.
