Molecular Genetic Pathology Review Course

The AMP Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Review Course is a live event held biennially. The 2017 Course was held Thursday, June 1 through Sunday, June 4, 2017, in Bethesda, MD. Visit the Program page for the agenda. The course featured 3.5 days of an intense update and review of molecular diagnostics that is primarily focused on preparation for the Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Subspecialty Certification Exam, as well as other certification exams. Participants had the opportunity to learn directly from recognized experts* in molecular pathology, most of whom hold MGP certification.
