Clinical Practice Overview

Responsibilities

Dan Jones Dan Jones, MD, PhD (Chair)
The Ohio State University

The Clinical Practice Committee is comprised of AMP members with expertise in one or more of the molecular specialties: infectious diseases, hematopathology, solid tumors, genetics and informatics. Its purpose is to address the challenges of clinical laboratories and, therefore, improve the service we provide. Separate working groups plan, organize and coordinate efforts such as sample exchanges, reporting surveys, validation and quality control measures. The committee meets monthly by conference call and at the annual meeting to address these issues pertaining to the clinical practice of molecular pathology.

Ongoing Responsibilities Include:

  • Clinical Practice Working Groups provide an important service to AMP members by reviewing, analyzing, and presenting data that guides current test reporting and interpretation practices.
  • AMP External Representatives provide subject matter expertise and AMP's organizational participation on collaborative initiatives led by other professional organizations and/or stakeholder groups.

If you have an idea or a suggestion for a new project, please let us know.
