Inspire. Influence. Impact.

To proactively drive change, you need the tools to make things happen. The Pathologists Leadership Summit provides just that—unparalleled access to the education and training you require to make a positive impact. It will help you grow personally and professionally – inspiring the leader within you as you brainstorm with key College of American Pathologists leaders in preparation for virtual visits with legislators on Capitol Hill, lobbying to protect the future of our specialty.

Whether you choose to attend in person or virtually, the Pathologists Leadership Summit is an opportunity for members to come together to strengthen their leadership skills and earn CME credit.

As a premier benefit of your CAP membership there is no registration fee.

“This is the best meeting of the year—timely information on the issues facing pathology and the opportunity to actually do something by advocating on Capitol Hill.”

When We Combine Our Voices, We Are a Power to Influence Change

Pathologists have power. Hear from colleagues on how we can work together to influence change.

Inspire the Leader Within. Strengthen Your Influence. Impact Positive Change.

Hear from newly inaugurated CAP president, Emily Volk, MD, FCAP, on why the Pathologists Leadership Summit—a benefit only afforded to CAP members, will help you better manage change, achieve greater influence, and establish relationships face-to-face with those who can get things done.

Shape the Future of Pathology—Attend the House of Delegates Meeting

Connect with pathology colleagues and influencers to help shape our specialty’s position on key issues at state and local levels, gain insights on advocacy activities, and understand the critical topics impacting CAP members at the House of Delegates Meeting (HOD) which kicks off the Pathologists Leadership Summit. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend.

“When I first started coming to Hill Day, I was worried that legislators may not be interested in what we do as pathologists or how to help us, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. They are very interested in pathology, how we contribute to medicine, and are eager to understand what they can do to help.”

Yasmeen Butt, MD, FCAP
