AMP International - Resources for International Members

Sample Exchange Program

The sample exchange program is an initiative of the AMP International Affairs Working Group and is designed to facilitate AMP member inter-laboratory sample exchanges for molecular test validation. The program is also designed to facilitate AMP member inter-laboratory proficiency testing in non-U.S. laboratories that do not participate in the DNA Sample Exchange Registry provided by the College of American Pathologists (CAP).

International Outreach Program

The AMPInternational Affairs Working Group is working to advance molecular pathology and AMP outside of North America. See the IAWG Outreach: Non-U.S. Conferences page for more information regarding these programs.

Trainee Exchange Program

The AMP Trainee Exchange Program is an online information resource and provides a listing of programs that are willing to work with selected visiting trainees. This program gives trainees in Molecular Pathology the opportunity to gain experience with assays and/or platforms that are not available at their parent institution and to gain exposure to the practice of Molecular Pathology at another institution.

International Membership Grant Program

Thanks to generous donations to the AMP Leadership Fund, each year a selection of non-U.S. laboratory professionals who would not otherwise have access to AMP services and activities due to limited financial resources in the applicant's local environment are granted one year of AMP membership at no charge. The recipients will be AMP Regular members with online access to AMP's journal, The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics. Successful applicants will receive AMP membership for one calendar year. Depending on fund availability, selected recipients may be invited to apply for a second year grant. See the International Membership Grants web area for application materials and a list of current awardees.
