The UCSF Department of Laboratory Medicine will provide funds for one fellow per year in Clinical Molecular Genetics and one per year in Clinical Cytogenetics. Funding for the remaining trainee time will be the responsibility of the fellow to arrange. Qualified fellows (U.S. citizens only) can apply for the T32 Training Grant to cover this additional time. However, the trainees may need to arrange for funding from an extramural source (private grants or postdoctoral fellowship positions). If a fellow chooses to complete two specialties, the Department of Laboratory Medicine may provide funding for one year in each specialty.
Funding for Visas
Neither the Department of Laboratory Medicine nor the Division of Medical Genetics will cover the costs for visas for trainees. All fellows who require visa support (H1-B or J-1 visa status) will be required to pay all visa costs required by both the UCSF International Students and Scholars Office and their home country with their own personal funds.
Does UCSF cover travel costs for an interview?
Unfortunately, due to the small size of our program and its limited funding, we are unable to cover the travel costs associated with an interview for our selected applicants.
Unfortunately, due to the small size of our program and its limited funding, we are unable to provide relocation reimbursements to our fellows.
Conference attendance will be determined by the Program Director and the funding source of the fellow. Costs associated with a trainee’s conference will be the responsibility of the funding source (i.e. extramural source would need to pay if the fellow is funded by an extramural source).
