Genetic Center's Training Programs
Laboratory Education and Training
For over 16 years, since 2004, the Genetics Center has been designated by the State of California as an “Approved Training Program” for Clinical Laboratory Scientist (CLS) specialty licenses. We currently offer training programs for both Clinical Genetic Molecular Biologist Scientists (CLSp(MB)) and Clinical Cytogeneticist Scientists (CLSp(CG)). We are also a California approved Continuing Education Accrediting Agency in order to provide the continuing education necessary to maintain these CLS specialty licenses.
Genetics Center also serves as a clinical rotation site for genetic counseling masters programs as well as providing genetic rotations for medical residency students. Given the blend of clinical genetics and laboratory testing provided by Genetics Center, students are able get a complete overview of the field of clinical genetics.
