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.

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.
