Laboratory Professionals Program

CAP19 is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and receive practical advice. This new program, designed for the entire laboratory staff, is an exploration of laboratory excellence, emerging trends, best practices, and inspector preparation—all in a day and one-half.


Our abstracts program offers pathologists and research scientists the opportunity to present original research to their peers in a poster presentation format. Editors from the Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine will evaluate submissions to this program.

Progressive pathologists need progressive education and information. For your convenience, the CAP provides all CAP19 SAMs online at We will provide instructions for accessing CAP19 SAMs at the meeting.
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!
