Get AMPed! Updates and Case Studies in Molecular Pathology

Presented by the AMP Training & Education Committee

Wednesday, November 2, 2022 | 8:15:00am - 4:00pm (local Phoenix time)

Location: Phoenix, AZ (Near the Phoenix Convention Center)
 

This website will be updated as more information becomes available. Please be sure to check back for all the latest information.

DESCRIPTION:

Join us for an interactive course designed to bring you up to speed in molecular pathology.  Topics include current molecular hot topics, preanalytical variables and workflow considerations that impact molecular testing, and an overview of current molecular technology including the application of modern technologies such as next generation sequencing and informatics. Faculty members will present an immersive workshop of case studies where participants will breakout into small groups to work through clinical molecular cases.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify common preanalytical variables that impact molecular testing
  • Discuss the methodologic and clinical considerations of when and how to implement testing by NGS
  • Compare and contrast methods of single nucleotide variant detection, copy number detection, and structural variant (fusions) detection by NGS and other related platforms.
  • Discuss considerations involved in workflow for a molecular pathology program including clinical applications, available assays, and costs

 

TARGET AUDIENCE

Individuals who have basic knowledge of molecular techniques and seek to understand the practical considerations of a molecular diagnostics program, including pathologists, geneticists, laboratory directors, trainees, laboratory technologists, computational biologists and informaticians.

WHAT TO EXPECT 
In the morning (8:15-12:15pm MST)
  • A brief lecture series will familiarize you with concepts and recent advances in the field of molecular pathology.
  • These lectures lay a foundation for the case discussions later in the day.
  • All lecture notes and any affiliated materials will be available for download.
In the afternoon (1:15-3:30pm MST)
  • Attendees will break-out into small groups to discuss case studies on infectious diseases, solid tumors, hematopathology, or genetics. All attendees will be able to work through all the case studies.
  • We will also ask you to fill out a brief course evaluation. We value your input! 
Post-course activities
  • You will be sent an email outlining how you can claim continuing education credits. 

 

CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS

Instructions for how to claim credit will be emailed to participants after the course.
