Powerful Profiles - ASCP

sponsored by ASCP

In 2022, the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) celebrated 100 years of growing, innovating, and advancing pathology and laboratory medicine to improve clinical care for patients. 

ASCP is actively committed to raising the visibility of pathology and laboratory medicine among the healthcare industry and consumers. We strive to further establish the laboratory’s role as the foundation of high-quality patient care.

As part of this commitment, over the past few years ASCP has undertaken a wide range of initiatives to strengthen and build the pathology and laboratory workforce while bringing awareness to the critical role the laboratory plays in patient care, including: 

  • The development of the Blueprint for Action, which identifies 12 workforce initiatives to address the challenges facing the laboratory workforce. 
  • The continued operation of the 40 Under Forty program, which recognizes high-achieving pathologists, laboratory professionals, and residents under the age of 40 for their achievements, leadership, and ability to effect change. 
  • The ASCP Career Ambassadors and Pathology Ambassadors programs, which recruits hundreds of volunteers to introduce pathology and laboratory medicine to students of all ages. 
  • Partnering with The Lab Drawer(TM), an innovative company that provides children STEAM educational kits. Through this partnership, new laboratory-focused kits have been created and will be deployed to schools across the country. 
  • The development of a strategic plan through the Council of Medical Specialty Society’s Equity Matters initiative to address anti-racism, diversity, equity, and inclusion within its governance and membership. 
  • A partnership with The Joint Commission to launch Leading Laboratories, which recognizes excellence while raising visibility of the laboratory’s critical role in patient care. 
  • Continued support to resource-limited countries through ASCP’s Center for Global Health. 
  • Supporting pathologists, laboratory professionals, and students through a range of grants and scholarships from the ASCP Foundation. 

The first century of ASCP brought innovation and growth; the next 100 years will bring even more. ASCP continues to advocate on behalf of our members and the profession with the goal of creating change in healthcare that makes the laboratory accessible and recognizable to all.
