USCAP pathology education

Educational Formats


The USCAP offers pathology education in a variety of formats, enabling busy pathologists many ways to learn and advance their skills. While some of our activities incur a charge in order to support our educational, non-profit mission, much of our content is free to all. Whichever format you choose, you’ll be learning from the experts.


The eAcademy

The eAcademy is home to our online education library.  The courses offered here span the pathology subspecialties.  Most courses offer CME/SAMs credits; all award certificates of completion to non-members and members alike. 


Our ACCME accredited courses have achieved the highest ACCME honorACCME accredited:  Accreditation with Commendation assuring you that your USCAP learning is the best available.



Our eLibrary offers a sampling of courses that have been presented at our renowned meetings from the three most recent years. Led by international authorities, these online courses are from 3 to 7 hours each.  Choose topics from many subspecialties and complete them within your timeframe. Included with each course are PowerPoint presentations, course handouts, and other supplemental materials.



MyPath™ is the preeminent research and resource tool for pathologists. This application combines the USCAP’s educational assets with the National Institutes of Health’s PubMed library and a variety of textbooks,  enabling users to search, save, learn, and connect with peers.



Meetings and Conferences

The USCAP hosts multi-day learning events throughout North America, including the world’s largest gathering of pathologist-scientists:  The USCAP Annual Meeting.


The USCAP Annual Meeting, traditionally held the first week in March each year, attracts over 5,000 pathology professionals from around the world – in fact over 20% of attendees come from locations outside of North America. If you are a pathologist the USCAP Annual Meeting is the place to be.


Our regional meetings are held in attractive venues throughout North America. These meetings are smaller and more readily enable peer-to-peer discussion and discovery. Guided by leading experts, course participants focus on substantive areas of pathology, bringing home learning that is readily applied to their daily practices.
