CME Accreditation Statement

This activity ("APC 2018 Annual Meeting") is being planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and the Association of Pathology Chairs (APC). ASCP is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The ASCP designates this "live" educational activity ("APC 2018 Annual Meeting") for a maximum of 24.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Meeting Objective/Target Audience

The APC Annual Meeting is a three-day meeting that provides educational activities for three major target audiences:

  1. chairs of academic departments of pathology and laboratory medicine;
  2. program directors and associate directors of pathology residency training programs;
  3. medical student educators of pathology in accredited medical schools; and
  4. faculty members aspiring to these positions.

The objective of the meeting is to facilitate knowledge acquisition regarding the ability of academic Pathology and Laboratory Medicine departments to carry out their missions in teaching, clinical service, and research. The meeting therefore focuses on undergraduate (medical school) and graduate (residency and fellowship) Pathology education, and the practice of Pathology and Laboratory medicine in academic medical centers and hospitals. Content focuses on issues such as the development of educational programs and curricula for the training of medical students, residents, fellows, and senior pathologists on providing cost-effective, high-quality clinical service to patients. The meeting also features content related to research and implementation of cutting edge practice tools, such as diagnostics, genomic medicine, and bioinformatics; and their implications on future healthcare delivery, as well as workforce development and realignment to support current and new skill sets required to practice Pathology and Laboratory Medicine now and into the future.

The target audience is professionals (MD, DO, PhD) and others who serve as the academic, medical, scientific, and administrative leaders of departments of pathology and laboratory medicine in the United States and Canada.

PLEASE NOTE:

APC, PRODS, and UMEDS sessions are eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ except where noted in the meeting program. PDAS and GMEAS sessions are not eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Visiting exhibits is not an approved continuing medical education activity. Most meals are not approved for continuing medical education credit; however, some special breakfasts and lunches that have educational content are eligible for Continuing Medical Education credit as noted in your APC Meeting Evaluation and CME Application Workbook. The meeting program states those events that are not a Continuing Medical Education activity.
