Molecular Genetic Pathology Review Course

The AMP Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Review Course is a live event held biennially. The 2019 Course was held from Thursday, May 16 through Sunday, May 19, 2019, in Bethesda, MD. The course features 3.5 days of an intense update and review of molecular diagnostics for those prepping for the Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Subspecialty Certification Exam as well as other certification exams, those who need a refresher, or anyone looking to add molecular testing to their current pathology practice. Participants have the opportunity to learn directly from recognized experts in the field of molecular pathology.


The online course will be available soon on AMPEDTM. Please check back here often for more information and to learn more about the online resources available for exam preparation and molecular pathology review.


The online course will provide continuing education credits (CME/CMLE) and SAMs credit. More information will be available soon.
