American Osteopathic College of Pathologists
Who Are We?
The American Osteopathic College of Pathologists, Inc. (AOCP), is the premier membership organization for osteopathic physicians specializing in the field of pathology. Membership in AOCP is open to practicing and retired osteopathic pathologists, as well as other physicians and those with an interest in the pathology field.
The purpose of the AOCP is to:
- Maintain the highest moral and ethical standards in education, research, and training in the practice of pathology;
- Develop and promote the application of the osteopathic concept in the field of pathology;
- Evaluate, determine, and establish methods, requirements, and procedures in the education of osteopathic physicians in the field of pathology;
- Insure that all programs conducted under the auspices of the AOCP are in accord with the adopted policies of the American Osteopathic Association; and to
- Study and promote such other arts and sciences as will improve the practice of pathology.
This program is being offered as a Joint Educational
Activity between the American Osteopathic College of Pathologists and the

American Osteopathic Association to provide osteopathic continuing medical
education for physicians. IOMS designates this program for a maximum of 1 AOA
Category 1-A* credits and will report CME and specialty credits commensurate
