Division of Genetics and Metabolism

CMS Regional Genetics Program

As part of a statewide contracted program with Children's Medical Services (CMS), Department of Health, our division serves as the regional referral and evaluation center for children throughout Central, North and Northwest Florida who have genetic conditions including inborn errors of metabolism (usually identified via the Newborn Screening Program)and birth defects, and whose care is coordinated or otherwise followed under the aegis of CMS.  In order to implement this program, the division operates satellite clinics throughout the catchment area. Clinic sites include day-long clinics in Orlando, Pensacola, Panama City, Tallahassee, Rockledge and Daytona Beach.
