AMP Certificate Program: Molecular Laboratory Management and Reporting: A Short Course for Laboratory Professionals


This AMP certificate program contains about 10  hours of lecture content, the associated pdf slides of the lectures, section pre-tests, a post-course exam, and an AMP Certificate of Completion. It also includes CME, CMLE, and SAM credits.


While most molecular pathology professionals receive a deep foundation in science and clinical practice, there is still a critical need for training in laboratory management and the soft skills required for operational effectiveness. This certificate program will provide an overview of best practices in many areas of laboratory management and reporting and will be broken up into four sections:

I.  Financial concepts for directing a laboratory
II. Regulatory aspects of molecular laboratory directorship
III. Key components of a high quality and high value laboratory operation
IV. Key components of a robust reporting structure

Each section contains a short pre-test to test your baseline knowledge of the content. It is then followed by presentations by subject matter experts. Some sections will include supplementary resources and tools, such as an ROI calculator spreadsheet, exercises in ethical considerations in molecular pathology, a validation outline template, a reading list, and many more. These talks, documents, and exercises will help you navigate the challenges inherent in laboratory management.

The last section will cover molecular test result reporting which will act as a capstone for the series and will include example report templates, a molecular in my pocket card and a summary talk by the content director.

A final post-test will test your knowledge of the content covered in the program and you can showcase your knowledge by printing the AMP Certificate of Completion.

Target Audience: Laboratory directors, trainees, managers, supervisors, and technologists, other practicing molecular pathologists, and other practicing non-molecular pathologists.

Duration: ~10 hours

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe best practices for managing and maintaining the various components of a laboratory budget.
  • Describe the fundamentals of, and recent changes in, molecular test reimbursement.
  • Identify the various regulatory agencies and core requirements, including international requirements.
  • Discuss strategies to meet regulatory and medical standards for assay validation, implementation and routine performance.
  • Describe effective communication of molecular testing results, including ethical considerations.
  • Identify tools for test result reporting and interpretation that impact patient management.
