Clinical Practice Overview


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.
  • The online AMP Test Directory ( is a valuable resource for AMP members to identify colleagues who may have knowledge and experience about specific assays or tests. Content may be submitted by AMP members, is maintained by the AMP Test Directory Editor, and is available to the general public.

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