The course itself features 3 1/2 days of intense update and review of molecular diagnostics that is primarily focused on preparation for the Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Subspecialty Certification Exam* as well as other certification exams. Participants have the opportunity to learn directly from recognized experts in molecular pathology, most of whom hold MGP certification. A special feature is an online Pre-Test, with special test discussion sessions during the course

• Bayesian Analysis

• Cytogenetics

• Inherited Conditions

• Molecular Coagulation

• Molecular Hematopathology

• Molecular Microbiology

DISCLAIMER: AMP makes no guarantee or assurances that completion of its courses or participation in any educational activity will in any manner ensure a passing score on any certification examination or activity post-test, or achievement of certification status.

For the purposes of Continuing Medical Education credits toward the American Medical Association Physician's Recognition Award, an Online Self-Study version of the “live course� will be available on September 1, 2011 for a maximum of 23.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. The Online Self-Study Course will include lecture materials from the “live course� and exam questions organized in topic modules. To receive CME credit for the Online Self-Study version of the AMP 2011 MGP Review Course, participants must answer at least 75% of the questions in a topic module correctly. CME credit will be apportioned for each module relative to the amount of learning materials, as follows for the topics of Bayesian Calculations (1), Cytogenetics (2), Inherited Conditions (4), Molecular Coagulation (1), Molecular Hematopathology (4), Molecular Microbiology(4), Molecular Oncology: Hereditary Cancer Syndromes, Sporadic Cancers, and Soft Tissue Tumors (5), Pharmacogenetics (1.5), Regulatory and Laboratory Management (1).

The AMP 2011 MGP Review Course is approved by the American Board of Pathology for up to 23.5 SAM credits. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. After successfully completing the online modular exams as described above for the Online Self-Study Course, participants in either the “live course� or the Online Self-Study Course may separately apply for SAM credit by completing the SAM application online on the AMP website (www.amp.org). All SAM applications must be completed by December 31, 2012 for participants to receive SAM credit.
