As one of the primary elements of the AMP Strategic Plan, education is critical to AMP's mission of influencing behavior based on the best science; and to be the educator of choice in molecular pathology. To that end, AMP dedicates many of its resources to educating its members and other professionals in the field.

Task Forces on Education Curricula in Molecular Diagnostics/Pathology:

For Technologists
(Medical/Clinical Laboratory Scientists)

Published in JMD (May 2014): Molecular Pathology Curriculum for Medical Laboratory Scientists: A Report of the Association for Molecular Pathology Training and Education Committee. Recommendations for the training of medical laboratory scientists/technologists in molecular diagnostics, including skills and techniques in genomics.
