THE WORK OF THE CAP HAPPENS BECAUSE OF THE STAUNCH ENGAGEMENT OF MEMBERS WHO DEDICATE THEIR TIME AND EXPERTISE.

CAP Strengthens Pathologists and Laboratories

Building scientific expertise, advancing careers, and helping pathologists run successful laboratories and practices are at the heart of what the College of American Pathologists does. This organization empowers members to harness their collective energy to become the best pathologists they can be and receive fair compensation for their work. The ultimate goal is to improve the health of our patients by diagnosing disease accurately and guiding effective therapy.

In 2019, the CAP lobbied Congress to protect patients from surprise medical bills and fought to both relieve regulatory burdens for pathologists and eliminate cuts to their reimbursement. We continued to ensure quality in laboratory medicine by adding and revising requirements for accreditation checklists, developing innovative proficiency testing programs, and releasing new cancer protocols. In everything we did, we listened to members and responded to their needs through practical education offerings, opportunities to network with peers, and new dynamic experiences.

The work of the CAP happens because of the staunch engagement of members who dedicate their time and expertise. They partner with highly skilled staff to serve their fellow members, customers, and patients in a dynamic, evolving health care environment. Change requires a strong, steady hand to guide the profession into the future. When pathologists succeed, patients win.
