Becoming Our Best Through Continuing Education
From live events to online courses, there are a number of ways that we can learn and evolve to perform at the top of our professional game
As pathologists and laboratory professionals, we’ve dedicated ourselves to saving lives through the study and diagnosis of disease. To perform at the best of our abilities, we must constantly update our knowledge. And to do that, we must participate in continuing medical education. Luckily, there’s an expanse of choices before you, and it has never been easier to take advantage of it.
The American Society for Clinical Pathology is recognized around the world not only as a professional society, but also as a provider of premier educational materials to pathologists and clinical laboratory scientists. This education enables you to learn, advance, and evolve throughout your career. It’s quick and easy to maintain your credentials and build your network. All of our education covers innovative, cutting-edge topics such as immuno-oncology, public policy, and pathology informatics.
Live events such as the annual meeting, education courses, Pathology Update, Pathology Update Middle East, and workshops for laboratory professionals provide opportunitiesoffer lecture-based and interactive sessions in specialty and subspecialty areas. They are a great way to refresh your knowledge base, explore new topic areas, and learn about the trends of tomorrow and their practical applications for today. Live events also provide an opportunity for to networking with your peers from around the world.
Our online learning management system provides education you can take anytime, anywhere – at home, at work, or even while traveling. Most courses take less than two hours to complete, so it’s a quick, easy way to maintain your credentials. We also offer online certificate programs such as Lab Management University, University of Pathology Informatics, and Leadership Institute. These programs were created to give our members support in their ongoing professional goals.
ASCP Press produces a plethora of reference and guide books, including the Board of Certification Study Guide, The Art and Science of Cytopathology, and Digital Pathology. We also produce two journals (The American Journal of Clinical Pathology and Lab Medicine) and one magazine (Critical Values) that keep members abreast of evolving technologies, applied science, and policy issues relevant to today’s bench technologists and practicing pathologists.
Everyone needs to complete their continuing education hours, but our hope is that once you explore ASCP’s options, the ease of access and excellence of content will keep you coming back year after year. We want your experience to surpass your expectations.
