Learn from the Best Minds
CAP members come from all types of laboratories: world-renowned hospitals, large commercial laboratories, and regional academic centers representing a variety of sizes, services, and patient populations. Having access to this broad range of experience and expertise is extremely valuable for sharing best practices and new advancements in laboratory medicine.
Through involvement on more than 70 committees, CAP pathologists and staff, along with experts throughout the field of laboratory medicine, design and develop our programs and genuinely understand the errors and challenges that can occur, as many have used the programs themselves. These individuals not only determine the programs’ specifications and requirements, they also infuse education into the reports, advise on best practices, and provide timely input into rapid changes, as was evident with COVID-19.
In response to the pandemic, we produced six new programs, implemented 27 accreditation checklist changes, and provided a wealth of information online including safety measures and validation for test methods.
