Clinical Informatics Certification

The American Board of Pathology is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for subspecialty certification in Clinical Informatics. The link to the application is posted on our website home page at www.abpath.org. Because this is a new ABMS/Am Board of Pathology subspecialty, there is a five year period of qualification by practice/experience. It is anticipated that in 2018 and thereafter, pathologists will only qualify for certification if they complete an ACGME accredited fellowship program in clinical informatics.

Journal of Pathology Informatics (JPI)

API members are encouraged to submit pathology informatics-related manuscripts via the JPI Web site for consideration for publication in API's open access, peer-reviewed journal.   JPI Web Site
