Specialty Training Course in Cytogenetics and Molecular Genetics and Genomics OnDemand with Credits
Course Information

Held at the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS), Tampa, Florida

Date of Meeting: June 30 – July 1, 2019

Due to the format, this course does not meet the requirements associated with the ABMGG Alternative Pathway to Board Certification in Laboratory Genetics and Genomics. 

This course features 19 presentations split between basic principles in Cytogenetics and Genomics and Molecular Genetics and Genomics. 

Overall Learning Objective:

Upon completion of participating in this activity, you should be able to:

  • Review new content areas in cytogenetics and genomics specialty
