Essential Information on Modified Inspection
In response to the global health emergency, the CAP has modified our laboratory inspection processes. We now offer a hybrid and virtual inspection model, in addition to a traditional inspection. Both make use of technology to complete a portion or all of the inspection process.
SET THE PATH
Plan to attend keynote speaker Michael Beschloss, Presidential Historian, at the Pathologists Leadership Summit, held virtually on May 1-4.

The College of American Pathologists (CAP) hosted a virtual forum addressing the Rapidly Changing COVID-19 Testing Landscape, the fourth in a series of ongoing media briefings and the first in 2021. View the full briefing program video recording.
“With Americans now getting the vaccine, testing remains a critical element as we navigate our new normal,” says CAP President Patrick Godbey, MD, FCAP, laboratory director, Southeastern Pathology Associates and Southeast Georgia Health System who introduced the program and was a panelist. “Today’s forum specifically addressed the role of at-home tests, new variants, the impact of deferred care due to COVID-19 and the health disparities we continue to see as the vaccine rolls out. This is a discussion we will continue to have to ensure efficient and effective turnaround of testing and fair, equitable care.”
