2022 CAP Distinguished Medical Student Award Winners

The CAP Distinguished Medical Student Award is given to a medical student who is in any year of training for outstanding achievement, great aptitude, or great interest in pathology.

A pathologist contact (department chair or program director or assigned faculty) at United States allopathic and osteopathic medical schools recommends an awardee annually to the College of American Pathologists for recognition.

This award intentionally elevates the specialty of pathology by leveraging pathologist involvement in medical students' training through interactions with medical students prior to and during the selection process.

The College of American Pathologists’ Distinguished Medical Student Award is one that will honor the student’s initiative in learning about pathology and participating in pathology-related activities.
