The Molecular Genetic Pathology program is an exceptional activity which will provide practicing pathologists with basic and most up-to-date information on the rapidly evolving field of molecular genetic pathology. This field has evolved to a point at which it has a major impact on most, if not all, areas of medicine, and hence an easy to understand practical guidelines will help pathologist stay current in their interactions with their clinical colleagues and ever-more knowledgeable patients demanding most accurate diagnosis and personalized care.

Intended Audience

Pathology residents and practicing pathologists without formal molecular pathology training/fellowship.
