The Division of Genetic and Genomic Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, located at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, is seeking a clinical or biochemical geneticist to join in clinical and teaching activities of the Division.The Division serves inpatients and outpatients of all ages in general genetics, cardiovascular genetics, metabolic, and prenatal clinics, with multidisciplinary clinics for bone metabolism, Down syndrome, 22q11 deletion, fetal medicine, and others. There is a busy metabolic practice covering a range of inborn errors of metabolism in over 1000 active patients. The Division also supports a Clinical Genetics residency program, and fellowships in Medical Biochemical, Molecular Genetics and Cytogenetics. Nationwide Children’s is 1 of 8 Regional Genetics Centers funded by the Ohio Department of Health, serving over 3.5 million (>750,000 pediatric age) in central and southeast Ohio, with 35,000 births annually. The successful candidate will join an expanding team that consists of seven clinical geneticists (three metabolic), 12 genetic counselors, two dieticians, three nurse practitioners, RN care coordinator, and a metabolic nurse. Full genetics laboratory services on site include biochemical genetics, cytogenetics, and molecular diagnostic labs with on-site whole exome sequencing.
There are a number of active clinical trials or natural history studies conducted through the Division. The investigators associated with the Research Institute have frequent collaborations with clinical faculty. Additionally, a main strategic focus at Nationwide Children’s is the implementation of genomic medicine across the hospital led by the new Institute of Genomic Medicine, which is closely affiliated with the Division of Genetic and Genomic Medicine.
