To enhance the profile of the practice of pathology and attract outstanding medical students into pathology and laboratory medicine, the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) offers a student award recognition program: Award for Academic Excellence and Achievement in Pathology.

This award honors medical students in years one through four who have achieved academic excellence, leadership ability, and a strong interest in the pathology profession. Ten medical students will be selected per year to receive this prestigious award. One student will be chosen to receive the Gold Award. Self-nominations are accepted, but official departmental approval is still required by the Pathology Department Chair, Program Director, or Course Director.
