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.
Celebrate Lab Week With Us
We invite you to use one of our complementary ecards and share your gratitude for all the medical laboratory professionals. While a week isn’t nearly enough, it’s an opportunity to pause and marvel at their dedication, accuracy, and precision—often doing work that is more akin to that of an artist than a laboratorian. But while their artistry inspires us—the fact that their medium also saves lives, is what makes us truly thankful.
Laboratory Pros: We See You and We Thank You
Please watch this video as we express to all the medical laboratory professionals, just how much they inspire us through their dedication, accuracy, and artistic precision.

Fourth COVID-19 Media Briefing
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.”
The session was moderated by Kisha A. Mitchell Richards, MD, FCAP, Director of Pathology and Laboratory, Greenwich (Connecticut) Hospital
Other panelists included: Carey Z. August, MD, FCAP, President, Board of Directors, College of American Pathologists Foundation; Chairman of Pathology and Medical Director of Laboratories, Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center; and Kalisha Hill MD, MBA, FCAP, FASCP, Governor, College of American Pathologists; Regional Chief Medical Officer, Amita Health St. Joseph Medical Center and St. Mary's Hospital Kankakee; Medical Director, Pathology and Laboratory Services, Amita Health St. Mary's Hospital Kankakee (Illinois).
