Molecular Genetic Pathology Review Course

The AMP Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Review Course is a live event held biennially. SAVE THE DATE: The 2021 Course will be held from Thursday, May 20 through Sunday, May 23, 2021, in North Bethesda, MD.*

Join our faculty of experts in molecular pathology to prepare for a certification examination,  earn credit toward continuing certification, receive updates in the field, and/or for a refresher in molecular pathology core concepts. The course will include didactic lectures, case studies,  and faculty meet-ups to facilitate in-depth discussions and additional questions.

COMING SOON: Registration for 2021 Molecular Genetic Pathology Review Course

Continuing education credits (CME and CMLE) are available for this course.

*This course will be offered in-person if possible, but in this pandemic environment, the organizers may determine that the safest format for the course would be as a socially distanced (limited attendance) in-person meeting with live-streaming options or, perhaps, as a fully virtual course. This determination will be made in mid-February

The objectives of the AMP MGP Review Course are:

  • To assist attendees in preparing for the MGP Subspecialty Certification Exam (offered jointly by the American Board of Pathology and the American Board of Medical Genetics), as well as other certification exams in molecular pathology and molecular genetics, and
  • To increase basic and applied pathology knowledge, focusing on the molecular pathogenesis, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of disease.

Topics covered include:

  • Molecular Technologies and Lab Methods
  • NGS Platforms and Informatics
  • Identity Testing
  • Inherited Conditions
  • Pharmacogenomics
  • HLA Transplant Testing
  • Cytogenetics
  • Molecular Oncology
  • Molecular Hematopathology
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Quality Assurance and Lab Regulation
  • Lab Management
