Bio

John C. Carey, MD, MPH, is Professor and Vice Chair of Academic Affairs, Department of Pediatrics, at the University of Utah. Throughout his career, Dr. Carey has been interested in birth defect syndromes and the care of children with these conditions. Dr. Carey graduated from Villanova University in 1968 with an A.B. and obtained his M.D. from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 1972. He trained in pediatrics, genetics and dysmorphology as a resident and fellow at the University of California San Francisco, 1972-1979. Dr. Carey obtained an M.P.H. from the University of California at Berkeley in 1976 in between his residency and fellowship years. Dr. Carey joined the faculty at University of Utah Health Sciences Center in 1979. He became Chief of the Division of Medical Genetics in 1985 and remained in that leadership position until 1999 when he stepped down to assume the role as Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Medical Genetics. He has held that editorial position since 2001. Dr. Carey established the Medical Genetics Fellowship Program at the University of Utah and continues as Program Director.

Dr. Carey’s research focus has been in congenital malformations, neurofibromatosis and syndrome delineation. He has authored or co-authored over 280 papers, chapters, invited articles and editorials for scientific journals. He also co-authored the textbook, “Medical Genetics,” by Jorde, Carey, & Bamshad, now in its 4th edition. The book is a widely used text in schools of medicine throughout North America and Europe.

Dr. Carey has served as medical adviser and “founding professional” for the Support Organization for Trisomy 18, 13 and Related Disorders (SOFT) since 1980. The medical and ethical aspects of care of infants and children with these conditions are currently some of his major academic interests.
