Preparing Pathologists for a Leading Role in Genomics

We are pleased to invite you to an important resident-only Genomic Pathology Workshop taking place on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 from 9:00am–5:00pm CST at ASCP 2013.

Next-generation sequencing methods and multi-gene panels have entered clinical practice. Pathologists, as directors of molecular pathology laboratories, are already playing a leading role in applying genomic technology to patient care. Regardless of your planned specialty, genomic pathology will become an important part of your career as a pathologist. Using a case-based, interactive small-group approach, workshop participants will learn principles related to the development of genomic assays and interpretation of results. The workshop will also include practical hands-on instruction with the use of online genomic pathology tools.

The workshop was developed and will be led by members of the Training Residents in Genomics (TRIG) Working Group. Established in 2010, this group made up of experts in molecular pathology, medical education, and genetic counseling was formed to provide genomic pathology educational resources.

Due to workshop structure, participation is limited to 30 residents. The selection process will take place soon. As such, please apply now for consideration by clicking here.
