AMP 2013 Molecular Genetic Pathology Review Course

MGP Online Self-Study Review Course

The Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Online Self-Study Review 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 2013 MGP Online Self-Study Review Course is now closed. Registration for the 2015 MGP Review LIVE Course is now open.

The MGP Online Self-Study Review Course features 24 hours of intense updates 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.


AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM

This activity was planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and the Association for Molecular Pathology. ASCP is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The ASCP designates the "Online Self-Study Course" educational activity (a recorded version of the "live course") with up to a maximum of 24.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. The Online Self-Study Course includes lecture materials from the "live course" and exam questions organized in topic modules.

SAM Credit: The AMP 2013 MGP Review Online Self-Study Course is approved by the American Board of Pathology for up to 24.0 SAM credits. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate wtih the extent of their participation in the activity. After successfully completing the online modular exams (answering at least 75% of the questions in a topic module correctly), participants may apply for SAM credit by completing the SAM application available on the menu link above. All SAM applications must be completed by December 31, 2014 for participants to receive SAM credit.
