The AMP Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Review Course is a live event held biennially. The 2013 Course was held April 4-7, 2013, in Bethesda, MD. Visit the Program page for a detailed agenda. The next MGP Review Course will be held in the Spring of 2015.

The Molecular Genetic Pathology Review - Online Self-Study Course is the online component of the live course that was held in 2013. It includes all presentations, slides, discussions, and tests conducted during the face-to-face event. The online version of the 2013 Course is available now. Note - registrants who attended the face-to-face course do not need to register for the online course to access the online materials.

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.

The objectives of the AMP MGP Review Course are:

  • to assist attendees' preparation for the MGP Subspecialty Certification Exam (offered jointly by the American Board of Pathology and the American Board of Medical Genetics), as well as other certification exams in molecular pathology and molecular genetics, and
  • to increase basic and applied pathology knowledge, focusing on the molecular pathogenesis, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of disease.
