  • Lab Management University, a new education program, has helped pathologists and medical laboratory scientists hone their lab management skills to advance their careers.

  • The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education has recognized the quality of the ASCP continuing medical education (CME) program – activities which keep pathologists at the leading edge of their profession – by awarding it the highest level of accreditation.

  • ASCP is addressing the workforce shortage and the future of the laboratory with outreach programs to encourage elementary and high school students to explore careers in laboratory medicine.
