This specialized education track consists of two sessions on Thursday, October 9. These sessions will help community pathologists, who represent the vast majority of practicing pathologists, become more comfortable with the integration of molecular pathology into their general practices; gain exposure to these new technologies; and better understand and implement this wonderful new set of concepts and tools.
Molecular diagnostics and genomics, including next generation sequencing methods and single and multi-gene panels, are now integral to pathology practice, resulting in an unprecedented paradigm shift. All pathologists, even those in community (general) practice, are being called upon to understand molecular testing, interpret results for clinicians, and to guide appropriate testing. This educational track bridges practice gaps for community pathologists and other clinical and laboratory professionals in the application of molecular testing with a focus on the diagnosis of Oncological diseases.
