About Us

The University of Michigan has a long history as a leader in genetics research, education and clinical care. As use of genomic technologies continues to increase in research and clinical settings, the Internal Medicine Division of Molecular Medicine and Genetics (MMG) serves a key role in bringing together basic, clinical, and translational expertise in genomic medicine, with multidisciplinary faculty comprised of MDs, PhD scientists, and genetic counselors. Demand for expertise in genetics continues to increase, and the Division of Molecular Medicine and Genetics is committed to advancing scientific discovery and clinical care of patients. 

Clinical genetics services are available through various UM Internal Medicine clinics, including Adult Medical Genetics, Cancer Genetics, Inherited Cardiomyopathies & Arrhythmias, and Breast Ovarian Risk Evaluation Clinic.  

MMG faculty are actively engaged in education, teaching and mentorship of clinicians and clinical and basic scientists, including undergraduate and graduate students, medical students, residents and fellows from various subspecialties. The Division is developing a clinical/translational educational curriculum in clinical genetics for physicians, allied health professionals, and researchers in basic and social sciences, to address the need for genetics expertise in both clinical medicine and translational research.
