The symposium provides significant opportunities for professional education, networking, and resource building for registrants. You should strongly consider attending if you are involved in molecular diagnostics or are interested in learning about this fast-paced specialty of clinical laboratory science. We are pleased to bring you these excellent educational opportunities at modest registration fees, thanks to our commercial exhibitors.
In addition, AMP has provided a generous stipend to offset registration costs for ten visiting technologists. Go to the Scholarship Application to download the form and submit your application. (The first ten qualified applicants will be awarded a scholarship). AMP has also provided a one-year membership to a trainee and a technologist who attends the meeting. These memberships will be raffled off at the end of the symposium; you need not be present to win.
Lunch will be provided with each day’s registration fee. In addition, there will be a wine and cheese reception at the close of Tuesday's session. An exhibit area will be open where you can learn of new products and services that are available to enhance laboratory operations from molecular-specific vendors.
While all physicians and health care professionals are invited, this year’s symposium is focused on the practices of hematology, oncology, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, infectious diseases, internal medicine, and pathology.
