Collapse 2017 AMPlicons: A Practical Molecular Toolkit and Case Studies Online Course (+CME/CMLE and SAM)

This course is designed for pathologists, residents, laboratory directors and technologists who have some prior exposure to molecular diagnostic testing. The course features introductory information about the state of the science as well as a series of case studies illustrating some of the most current principles and practices in the field of Molecular Pathology. Attendees from all career levels will benefit from this staple offering.

 

The objective of this course is to increase basic and applied pathology knowledge, focusing on the molecular diagnosis of disease and to facilitate knowledge acquisition regarding issues and challenges related to care and prevention. This course is designed to meet the participants' educational needs in the physician competency area of Medical Knowledge, as defined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), and to support participants' lifelong learning towards a goal of promoting patient safety and improving patient care.

Contemporary hot topics in the clinical molecular diagnostics laboratory will be introduced, followed by an overview of genomic testing to build the molecular diagnostic "toolkit." Short case presentations will demonstrate practical applications of a wide range of methodologies ranging from common commercial platforms to traditional amplification methods.
