Diagnostic molecular pathology is currently regarded as a fundamental element of surgical pathology. Excellent oncologic care requires that practicing surgical pathologists understand molecular testing platforms, results, and clinical significance. This comprehensive, case-based conference will prepare attendees for both common and uncommon clinical scenarios where molecular testing should be applied, with a focus on cost- and time-effective methodology.


Intended Audience

This program is designed for practicing surgical and molecular pathologists and other medical laboratory scientists or physicians interested in enhancing their delivery of care.


Conference Objectives

Upon completion of the conference, participants should be able to:

  • Identify clinical scenarios where molecular testing is appropriate and inappropriate.
  • Discuss fundamental features of molecular testing platforms.
  • Interpret molecular test results.
  • Explain the clinical significance of molecular test results.

Attendance at this Mayo conference does not indicate nor guarantee competence or proficiency in the performance of any procedures that may be discussed or taught in this conference.
