    Medical genetics is a relatively new field of medicine but in the last few years has found ramifications into almost all fields of clinical medicine. Although significant advances have happened world over in genetics, particularly in application of genetic knowledge in clinical practice, there has not been a parallel increase in trained manpower in this field. There is a striking paucity of medical professionals involved in the practice of clinical genetics in India and an urgent need is felt to provide exposure and training in the diagnosis as well as management of genetic disorders to clinicians across all specialities at various stages of their careers. SIAMG and Genzyme have joined hands towards this common goal with this short duration fellowship program for clinicians.
    The Objective is to provide an in-depth clinical experience at a premier medical center with expertise and significant clinical volume in the area of clinical genetics and, thereby, to increase the number of clinicians with interest, knowledge, and expertise in this field.
    The purpose of the SIAMG-GENZYME Clinical Genetics fellowship Award Program is to: 

    1. Advance education, research and standards of practice in medical genetics. 
    2. Develop and expand clinical expertise in medical genetics in India
