Mission Statement

The Los Angeles Society of Pathologists, Inc. is dedicated to promoting and improving the practice of pathology for the benefit of patients, the Society’s members, and the local pathology community. The Society achieves its mission by:

  • Fostering continuing education through Scientific Programs, using case presentations, didactic lectures, workshops and panel discussions, designed to improve the quality of pathology practice. 9 of the programs will be offered on a monthly basis, 1.5 hours each month and 1 will be an all day program, 5-6 hours in length. Most programs will feature local academic specialists with national and international specialists or a local specialist of note provided for the September, December and January Programs.
  • Supporting the needs of individual practitioners by primarily discussing scientific issues with some attention to legislative and governmental issues related to current practice.
  • Identifying informational needs through the Quality Improvement process, periodic evaluation/suggestion process, and constant review of current medical literature, as deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors.
  • Making educational programs, which address current needs and expectations, available to all Active and Junior members, non member physicians, and other health professionals.
  • Providing a forum for the open exchange of new ideas.
  • Encouraging pathology residents to conduct research and present their findings to the members.
  • Providing a fraternal atmosphere that promotes mutual support for the Society’s members.
