The Molecular Pathology Competency Series

These micro-learning modules are targeted to practicing laboratory professionals and cover many aspects of competency in the laboratory. They are short (10-15 minute) presentations covering Core (basic proficiency) or Advanced (specialized and/or recently updated) concepts in a particular area of laboratory training. This content addresses specific advances in training, technology, and laboratory operations and acts as review and/or updates in important principles for laboratorians over the full arc of their careers.
