"Molecular in My Pocket..." Reference Card Series
The AMP Training and Education Committee has produced a series of quick reference cards for trainees and anyone looking to quickly reference molecular healthcare information.  Printed cards will be available at meetings where AMP exhibits, but the cards are availble for download here:

Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) Virtual Molecular Tumor Boards (Through 2017) As molecular testing becomes more widely adopted in the community oncology setting, cancer programs can benefit from access to innovative formats to help ensure that communication and quality patient care standards are maintained. Several innovative ACCC member programs have begun using virtual tumor board models as part of the integration of molecular testing into practice. The virtual format allows participation by a variety of providers across a wide geographic area. Members of multidisciplinary teams across sites are invited to join in the virtual discussion of cases and determine treatment - regardless of the physical location of the patient and care team. Building on interviews with select ACCC member programs, ACCC and our partner organization, the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP), are developing a webinar series focused on virtual molecular tumor boards for lung and breast cancer. The 12-webinar series features case studies and robust discussions on molecular testing in the community setting.

"EGFR and NSCLC Diagnostic Strategies: What Should You Know?"
AMP has partnered with Medscape to develop this free online learning opportunity. This event was recorded live at the AMP 2016 Annual Meeting.  A recorded version of this event can be accessed on the Medscape website using the link above.

National Human Genome Research Institute
AMP is a member of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) Inter-Society Coordinating Committee (ISCC) for Practitioner Education in Genomics. 

The Genetics/Genomics Competency Center (G2C2)
G2C2 is a free, online collection of materials for use in the classroom and for self-directed learning in genetics and genomics created by the NHGRI Genomic Healthcare Branch, within the Division of Policy, Communications and Education.

Training Residents in Genomics (TRIG) Instructor Materials
The TRIG Working Group Resident Genomic Pathology Workshop Instructor Handbook and Toolkit provides the materials and guidance needed to implement a structured and field-tested introductory resident genomic pathology curriculum. Released in 2014, the curriculum consists of approximately seven hours of instruction and uses a flipped classroom and team-based learning approach. The instructor leading this workshop does not need to be an expert in genomic pathology, however; a strong background in molecular pathology is recommended.

Molecular Oncology Tumor Boards
The Molecular Oncology Tumor Boards are a series of monthly user-driven discussions designed to help cancer care providers with the interpretation and understanding of tumor molecular profiling tests and studies. Moderated by an expert pathologist and medical oncologist, each case will be updated with new information over a two week period as user comments are added. After two weeks, the discussion forum will be locked to further commentary and users will be able to claim CME credit for their participation. This series is an educational collaboration between the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the College of American Pathologists (CAP), and the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP).

Making the Right Moves: A Practical Guide to Scientific Management for Postdocs and New Faculty
Based on presentations and discussions from a course developed by HHMI and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, this book is a collection of practical advice, experiences, and opinions from seasoned biomedical investigators and other professionals. It includes a chapter on job searches/negotiations. Download the book for free.
