Please read about our upcoming symposium below and register to join us today!
We are pleased to present the Beaumont Health System 26th Annual Symposium on Molecular Pathology: Clinical Applications of Genomic Medicine. This year’s symposium will again be held at the beautiful Somerset Inn in Troy, Michigan on September 13-14, 2017.
We are very excited about this meeting because there is something for everyone.
The symposium provides significant opportunities for professional education, networking and resource building. 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 medicine.
- Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) sponsored sessions each morning and a Resident/Fellow Case Presentation competition
- A Keynote Presentation on Practicing Pathology in the Era of Molecular Classificationand Precision Medicine
- Other topics in molecular hematology/oncology, clinical genomics and molecular microbiology
- A wine and cheese reception on Wednesday evening
Upon completion of this conference, attendees can expect to achieve the following overall objectives:
- assess advanced methods employed for clinical molecular testing
- employ new technologies being implemented in molecular diagnostics
- discuss pertinent and innovative aspects of molecular technology related to clinical applications
- identify important aspects of molecular medicine including emerging technologies, molecular-based oncology, hematology and microbiology testing
- appraise future considerations and issues based on research activities and clinical needs
Accreditation & Credit Designation
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of William Beaumont Hospital and Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP). William Beaumont Hospital is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
William Beaumont Hospital designates this live activity for a maximum of 8.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
(CME Credit breakdown: Tuesday 4.75; Wednesday 4.0).
Here is what others who have attended Beaumont’s Annual Symposium on Molecular Pathology had to say about our programs:
- “This is an excellent opportunity to keep up with new developments in the field…”
- “I plan to use the knowledge gained during the symposium as a stepping stone to further my skill set in molecular techniques.”
- “Because I work in the “Cytogenetics Laboratory”, the information presented provided me with a wealth of clinical information that will allow me to do my job better.”
- “I plan to follow the recommended procedures that I learned…”
- The event “helped me become more updated with changes in molecular diagnosis. Thank you for an enlightening time.”
- As a result of attending the program, the one action I plan to take to change my practice is to “thoroughly evaluate several PCR-based methods for Bordetella pertussis detection prior to implementation into clinical practice.
