Learn about the number one practice concern:
Professional Relationships

peer2peer Practice Roundtables allow the College of American Pathologists (CAP) members to host and lead informal, welcoming, and collegial conversations on the current state, future outlook, and growth opportunities for your practice.

Roundtable Discussion Trends

The peer2peer Roundtable Discussion Trends allow practices to identify important issues, share examples, and provide suggestions to their peers.

Participate in the Discussions

Together, you and your colleagues will have the opportunity to:

  • Generate an active, ongoing dialogue among practice colleagues focused on the challenges specific to that group
  • Identify specific resources and action steps for forward movement
  • Provide a national peer-to-peer pathology practice resource
  • Initiate ongoing interactive conversations among practices and with the CAP

If you are a CAP Member interested in participating in a peer2peer roundtable as a Practice Leader Host or Conversation leader, complete the Interest Form and Demographics Form.

  • Practice Leader Host: A pathologist who hosts a conversation at his or her practice and invites practice partners and key stakeholders to the roundtable.
  • Conversation Leader: A pathologist, from a different Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) region than the host practice, who faces challenges in his or her practice setting similar to those of the host group; the conversation leader facilitates the conversation.
  • More details about the requirements of each position are on the interest and demographic forms.

A CAP staff partner will attend each roundtable to serve as a liaison between the College and the host group; provide support to the conversation leader before, during and after the event; identify applicable CAP resources; and follow up on issues identified during the conversations.


  • The host will select the meeting space, generally at the host facility.
    • The CAP will coordinate and cover the costs of travel for conversation leaders and CAP partners.
  • The conversations last approximately 60 to 90 minutes, and are informal: no presentations, lectures, or equipment needed.
    • The CAP will coordinate with the host on the selection and delivery of refreshments, paid for by the CAP.
    • The CAP partner will take minutes at the event and provide a copy to the conversation leader and the host post-event.
  • The information gathered at the event is stored and made anonymous by the peer2peer program coordinator.
  • The CAP partner maintains communication with the host practice, offering resources and information to help the practice group move forward, post-event.
