Do Medical Genetics fellowships admit DO's that trained in an AOA accredited residency rather than an ACGME accredited residency?

I've recently accepted a position in Family Medicine with a residency program that will soon have pre-accreditation status in ACGME but is unlikely to be fully accredited through ACGME before I graduate in 2019. I hope to pursue fellowship in medical genetics after residency and would like to know if any programs take AOA residents or if I need to transfer to an ACGME program after my intern year in order to get into MG fellowship. I have a bachelors degree in computer science and a strong interest in medical genetics. After a few months of rotations in medical genetics, I think it would be a rewarding career for me.
