Hello ASCP Laboratory Professional members!
Along with presenter @Laura Severs, the conversation around "Regulations and Compliance in Digital Pathology" will be continuing via this thread.
If you would like to watch (or re-watch!) the roundtable, it can be found in the file library: Laboratory Professionals Member Community - ASCP CommunityPlease post your thoughts and questions.
Hi Giorgis, thank you for your question. I am bringing my colleagues from the ASCP Board of Certification into the conversation to respond. @Amy Wendel Spiczka and @Joseph BakerThank you!
Thanks for reaching out to us. The ASCP Board of Certification does not offer a credential that is specific Digital Pathology. However, recognizing the growing importance and integration of DP in Anatomical Pathology practice, ASCP has included relevant components of Digital Pathology in some of its certificate programs. These programs are designed to enhance understanding and skills in various facets of pathology, including aspects of DP.
To explore these options and gain more insights into how these programs can complement your professional development in DP, I invite you to visit the ASCP website for detailed information: ASCP Certificate Programs.
Your perspective on the importance and demand of Digital Pathology (DP) certification, especially in the context of African countries, is indeed valuable. I will ensure that your thoughts and suggestions are communicated to the international teams of the ASCP and BOC. Your contribution towards emphasizing the future of pathology and collaboration is greatly appreciated!
