References for Rotating Residents and Students

Below is a list of references for the rotation in Medical Genetics.  For access to most of the articles, you need to be on campus or logged-in remotely.

 

Basic schedule - please review schedules in WakeOne for the most up-to-date clinic schedule ('MC BC 07 Pediatric Medical Genetics' in WakeOne).  Most clinics start at 8:30am and are on the 7th floor of the Ardmore Tower in the Pediatric Specialty Clinic of the Brenner Children's Hospital.  The exceptions are satellite clinics that are generally the first three Mondays of the month, and a cleft palate-craniofacial disorders clinic on the second and fourth Thursday afternoons in a month.  Consults are typically done in the afternoons or on non-clinic days.
