The Company We Keep

Companion Societies are specialty pathology societies that are qualified to hold scientific educational sessions and elective business meetings in conjunction with the USCAP Annual meeting.  These organizations impact learning and connectivity from a collective, diverse knowledge base, comprising a unique sphere of influence that dramatically enhances the USCAP experience.  Conversely, Companion Societies benefit from the prestige this status confers and from their unique access to use the USCAP Interactive Center.

Guidelines for Companion meetings provide a standardized management algorithm.

Sustained Companion Society status requires compliance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) guidelines and standards, favorable performance reviews by learners and the USCAP Education Committee, internal governance stability and respect for the Academy’s Code of Conduct.

Learn more about becoming a Companion Society.

In addition to the awards offered by the USCAP, some Companion Societies also offer Pathologist-in-Training Awards for papers presented at the Annual Meeting of the Academy. Learn more about Pathologist-in-training Awards.
