What We Offer
Because of the critical role pathologists play in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, and the extensive education and training required for pathology certification, pathologists are sometimes referred to as the “Doctor's Doctor”. In addition to completing an approved medical school and residency program, pathologists must generally obtain certification from the American Board of Pathology or the American Osteopathic Board of Pathology. Certification in anatomic and clinical pathology requires five or more years of training and many pathologists spend additional years of training to receive certification in subspecialty areas of pathology such as dermatopathology, cytopathology and hematopathology.

SaraPath’s laboratories are supported by more than 90 experienced technical and administrative staff and have received accreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is an internationally recognized program and the only one of its kind that utilizes teams of practicing laboratory professionals as inspectors. Designed to go well beyond regulatory compliance, the program helps laboratories achieve the highest standards of excellence to positively impact patient care.
