College of American Pathologists' Education Division Receives Top Honor

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) has awarded the Education Division of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) the status of Accreditation with Commendation as a provider of continuing medical education for physicians.

Northfield, IL (PRWEB) August 28, 2008 -- The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) has awarded the Education Division of the [College of American Pathologists] (CAP) the status of Accreditation with Commendation as a provider of continuing medical education for physicians.

This Accreditation is a significant accomplishment as only about six percent of all providers seeking accreditation or re-accreditation are awarded this highest level of distinction.

"To ensure optimal results and patient safety," said William F. Hickey, MD, FCAP, chair of the CAP Council on Education, "the CAP prides itself on providing pathologists with the highest caliber of timely, practical continuing medical education. Therefore, recognition of our efforts by an external accrediting body is most encouraging."

The College was awarded a six year accreditation, a rating that indicates optimal compliance with the AACME standards. This rating demonstrates overall excellence in the delivery of continuing medical education program activities and recognizes the CAP's performance as exemplary.

"We are very proud of having attained this level of recognition," said Constance Filling, CAP vice president of education. "As our goal is to help our members excel in all areas of laboratory medicine and ensure the highest caliber of patient care, this award certainly attests to the effectiveness of our efforts."

Education, offered in the areas of anatomic and clinical pathology, practice management, and laboratory procedures, focuses on practical education for both pathologists and laboratorians. CAP education is offered via a broad range of formats, including online training, audio conferences, podcasts and live events.
