CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS - Clinical Practice Committee and Training & Education Committee

 

FOR AMP TRAINEES: Check out opportunities to be involved with either the AMP Clinical Practice Committee (CPC) or Training & Education (T&E) Committee for 2016-2017! Junior Members on AMP Committees are categorized as having Associate Membership, which is open to students, postdoctoral fellows, and residents. Associate membership carries all the benefits of full membership except holding elected office and voting rights in AMP elections. Associate members are eligible to be considered for a Junior Member position on the committees. Note: Although applicants can apply to both positions, applicants are strongly encouraged to focus their responses only in ONE area of interest and experience, i.e., clinical practice OR training and education topics.


CLINICAL PRACTICE COMMITTEE (CPC): The CPC is comprised of AMP members with expertise in one or more of the molecular specialties: infectious diseases, hematopathology, solid tumors, genetics and informatics. Its purpose is to address the challenges of clinical laboratories and, therefore, improve the service we provide. Separate working groups plan, organize and coordinate efforts such as sample exchanges, reporting surveys, validation and quality control measures. The committee meets monthly by conference call and at the annual meeting to address these issues pertaining to the clinical practice of molecular pathology. More information about the activities of the Clinical Practice Committee can be found in the “Innovation and Improved Patient Care� section of past AMP Newsletters and annual reports, and the CPC webpage.

 

Apply to become the 2016-2017 Junior Member of the CPC: One Junior member will be selected to serve for two calendar years, overlapping the first year with an incumbent Junior Member. Responsibilities of the Junior Member will be determined within a specific project and aligned to his/her interests. Must be available for the monthly committee conference call on the third Monday of every month from 2:00pm-3:00pm (Eastern).

  • Addressing training and certification requirements
  • Compiling curriculum materials
  • Developing workshops and continuing education opportunities
  • Surveying educational offerings in molecular pathology
