What Previous Attendees Have Said

  • “I was looking for the practical advice that I could take home right away and use to improve patient care. I did not want a reiteration of a text book. The take-aways I received from the CAP meeting have really added value to my practice. I look forward to attending future meetings!”

    Sonya Naryshkin, MD, FCAP Mercy Health System, Janesville, Wisconsin
  • "This meeting is not only about practical education, but also about the value of networking with successful pathologists who have had the same challenges. It’s incredibly valuable; and if I need help, I can reach out to them."

    John R. Harbor, MD, FCAP

The CAP is pleased to demonstrate its continuing commitment to your professional development through SAMs offered with many CAP18 education courses.

This year, you may earn up to 30 SAM credits. SAM courses are tagged with the icon.

CAP SAMs are a key component of your educational experience as they provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate competency at the cutting edge of pathology science and skill. Expert faculty develop each SAM alongside experienced assessment developers.

CAP SAMs deliver:

  • Top-tier, subspecialty medical educators who develop and lead courses
  • Highly interactive formats
  • Outcomes-based learning

Progressive pathologists need progressive education and information. For your convenience, the CAP provides all CAP18 SAMs online at We will provide instructions for accessing CAP18 SAMs at the meeting.
