October 10, 2016

Richard Scanlan, M.D.Richard "Mick" Scanlan, M.D., F.C.A.P., professor and acting chair of pathology, OHSU School of Medicine, was honored recently for his dedication to the education mission in academic medicine. Dr. Scanlan received the College of American Pathologists' Excellence in Teaching Award during CAP16: The Pathologists' Meeting in late September.

Dr. Scanlan chairs the CAP's Commission on Laboratory Accreditation and is the instructor for the Laboratory Medical Direction Advanced Practical Pathology Program—both of which help ensure the best possible outcomes for the patients of medical laboratories. He said, "The opportunity to interact with pathologists in these small group sessions and discuss real-life problems faced by laboratory medical directors has been a unique opportunity and has resulted in lasting friendships between learners, faculty, and CAP education staff."

The College of American Pathologists is the world's largest association of board-certified pathologists. Three of its members were recognized for their contributions to pedagogy both in early and continuing medical education. Read more about the awardees.
