Clinical, Educational and Research Advances in Human Genetics
The Division of Human Genetics within the Department of Internal Medicine is an academic unit that provides outpatient and inpatient consultation service, performs clinical and translational research and participates in medical center and community education and outreach. We invite you to explore these pages to see how the Division can meet your clinical, education and research needs.
Each year the Clinical Cancer Genetics Program provides comprehensive risk assessments and cancer genetic counseling to approximately 600 families. The Division has also established partnerships with Holzer Clinic and Zanesville's Genesis Healthcare System to provide cancer genetics services to their patients. As well as ensuring comprehensive patient care in cancer genetics throughout Ohio, this partnership enhances accrual to our cancer genetics research protocols.
The Division also has an active Medical Genetics Program that provides consultation and evaluation for all genetic conditions. Two unique, specialized programs include the Cardiogenetics Program and the Adult Down Syndrome Clinic. The Cardiogenetics program includes the High Risk Family Heart Clinic and the Hereditary Heart Rhythm Disorders Clinic as well as consultation for patients and families with cardiomyopathy and aneurysm disorders. The goal of the Adult Down Syndrome Clinic is to provide a comprehensive program that provides complete medical evaluations, focusing on issues specific to both adults with Down syndrome and their families.
