Fellowship In-Service Examination 2023: Exam 1

Welcome to the Fellowship-in-Service-Examination (FISE) 2023 brought to you by the Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) Program Directors and the Association for Molecular Pathology.

These exam questions were written by MGP faculty from many MGP-Fellowship institutions and cover the range of topics listed below. For each examination, a total of 45 questions populated from a question bank of over 500 questions will be randomly generated. At the end of the examination, you will receive your results along with the correct responses, an explanation of the correct choice, and references for further information. You will only receive this information for each question answered, so you are encouraged to answer all questions, regardless of whether or not you know the correct answer.

You are welcome to take the exam as many times as you like, but please note that participants will be charged a small administrative fee ($35 for AMP members, $75 for non-members) each time they take the exam.

Good luck!
