The Division is responsible for the diagnosis and care of children with genetic and metabolic diseases at Children's Health Dallas, and in the neonatal units of University-affiliated hospitals, including Parkland Hospital, a large county hospital with nearly 16,000 deliveries per year. We seek applicants at any level of experience in dysmorphology and/or inborn errors of metabolism.

Both clinicians and physician-scientists in the Division of Pediatric Genetics and Metabolism have access to research-based sequencing, metabolomics and informatics through the CRI to complement clinical diagnostics.
