Saint Peter's University Hospital is the home of the Institute for Genetic Medicine, which is under the direction of Debra Day-Salvatore, M.D., Ph.D. This institute is a collaborative effort among geneticists, maternal-fetal medicine specialists and neonatologists, providing diagnosis and intervention for a variety of genetic disorders and congenital defects. Designated by the state as a regional center for inherited metabolic disorders, the institute provides follow-up and therapeutic intervention for infants diagnosed with genetic disorders through the state's newborn screening program, which has resulted in improved neonatal outcomes.
Experience in genetic disorders is obtained by Obstetrics and Gynecology residents as they rotate in collaboration with the Institute of Medical Genetics during their maternal-fetal medicine rotation in PGY-2. Experience in genetics is also obtained through their rotation in obstetrics, which occurs each year. Further experience in genetic disorders is obtained during the rotations in reproductive endocrinology and infertility and gynecologic oncology.
Specific genetic disorders are discussed at the weekly ultrasound/genetic conference and through the tumor board conference in gynecologic oncology. Topics also related to genetic disorders are incorporated into the weekly resident didactic series and the grand rounds lecture series. Dr. Debra Day-Salvatore and her staff supplement the faculty from Maternal-Fetal Medicine in supervising residents as they deal with genetic disorders.
