Pathologists are diagnostic physicians and essential members of the patient’s health care team. They provide a diagnostic roadmap from disease identification to therapeutic intervention in both chronic and life-threatening illnesses. In fact, more than 70 percent of all decisions about diagnosis, treatment, hospital admission, and discharge rest on the pathologist’s report.
The College of American Pathologists is a medical society serving more than 17,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world. It is the world’s largest association composed exclusively of board-certified pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance. The College is an advocate for high-quality and cost-effective patient care.
Interviews with faculty and scientific plenary speakers are available upon request.
