AMPlicons: A Practical Molecular Toolkit and Case Studies

Presented by the AMP Training & Education Committee

Wednesday, November 6, 2019 | 8:00am - 3:45pm

Location: Hilton Holiday Ballroom 1/2 Baltimore, MD
 
Online Registration is now closed. A limited number of on-site registrations will be available.
 
DESCRIPTION:

Join us for an interactive course designed to bring you up to speed in molecular pathology.  In the morning, after an exciting look at current molecular hot topics, we will review preanalytical variables that impact molecular testing, followed by an overview of current molecular technology including the application of novel technologies such as next generation sequencing and informatics.  In the afternoon, faculty members will present an immersive NGS workshop of case studies where participants will breakout into small groups to work through NGS cases in clinical genetics, solid tumors, hematopathology, and infectious diseases.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  • Identify common preanalytical variables that impact molecular testing.
  • Select the most appropriate clinical applications for PCR, non-PCR based amplification and array platforms.
  • Discuss the methodologic and clinical considerations of when 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 (for CNVs).
TARGET AUDIENCE
Community pathologists, pathologists new to molecular, trainees, and technologists

CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS

Physicians          

In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Amedco LLC and Association for Molecular Pathology.  Amedco LLC is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

Credit Designation Statement – Amedco LLC designates this live activity for a maximum of 4.50 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. 

CMLE

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Amedco and joint provider-ship of the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP). ASCP CMLE credit hours are acceptable for the ASCP Board of Certification Maintenance Program (CMP)

American Board of Pathology Self-Assessment Credit

This course is valid for up to 4.50 of SA-CME Self-Assessment credits (SAMs). Learners should self-submit these credits to their boards.

Learners must pass the post-test with a score of 80% or higher and complete an evaluation form to receive a certificate of completion. Your chosen sessions must be attended in their entirety.  Partial credit of individual sessions is not available. 

If you are seeking continuing education credit for a non-ABP specialty, it is your responsibility to contact your licensing/certification board to determine course eligibility for your licensing/certification requirement.

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