A New and Improved Page for the Continuing Certification Program in PATHway

March 22, 2022 - To provide a more user-friendly experience for diplomates, the American Board of Pathology (ABPath) recently updated the Continuing Certification (CC) page in PATHway, the ABPath’s online portal for residents and diplomates. The new CC page contains everything diplomates need to know to satisfy their CC requirements on one page, with ABPath CertLink® (ABPCL) tracking coming in April after the first quarter ends.

The CC Program is made up of two main components to maintain board certification, continuous participation in ABPCL and completing Reporting forms every two years. Diplomates will now be able to view a customized page displaying the current status of those requirements all in one location. In addition, diplomates can pay the annual fee through a link on this page.

We will continue to refine the PATHway platform for the ease of residents and diplomates applying for and/or maintaining board certification in pathology.

Check out the updated page by logging into PATHway and selecting the CC Program tab at

American Board of Pathology Announces a Three-Year Extension of the Practice Pathway for Certification in Clinical Informatics


TAMPA, Fla., (March 8, 2022)- The American Board of Pathology (ABPath) is pleased to announce the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) recently approved the ABPath’s request to extend the time-limited Practice Pathway for the Clinical Informatics subspecialty. The extension is for three years through the 2025 exam cycle.

The Clinical Informatics certification exam is a joint and equal function of the ABPath and the American Board of Preventative Medicine. The Practice Pathway allows physicians with substantial experience in the practice of Clinical Informatics, but who have not completed an ACGME-accredited fellowship in Clinical Informatics, the opportunity to apply for the Clinical Informatics certification exam. For more information and the rationale for the request to extend the Practice Pathway, visit Extension of the Practice Pathway for Certification in Clinical Informatics.
