Dr. Hanna Faghfoury
The Residency Program in Medical Genetics at the University of Toronto is a five-year program accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC). This includes two years of basic clinical training in paediatrics, internal medicine and obstetrics and gynaecology, followed by genetics training. The latter includes exposure to laboratory specialties (molecular genetics, biochemical and cytogenetics), clinical genetics (adult, paediatric, cancer, prenatal and speciality genetics clinics), clinical biochemical genetics, and protected research time.
Our programs are committed to excellence in training individuals for careers in academic and research-based genetics. SickKids is enriched by collaboration with our Research Institute and activities with the basic scientists include regular combined rounds and seminars.
