CPIP supports pathologists who principally practice clinical pathology as well as those who primarily practice anatomic pathology but cover clinical pathology. A diverse portfolio of real-life case scenarios, including images and clinical background, helps pathologists to stay abreast of issues and advances in the lab.

Designed for pathologists, by pathologists. Each case is developed and peer-reviewed ensuring what you learn is practical and easily applied to your work. Thought provoking questions with feedback allow you to assess and confirm your diagnostic skills. Participants may apply their earned credits to the ABP’s CC requirements.
