The College of American Pathologists (CAP) is expanding its Competency Model for Pathologists. The CAP worked with the ABMS definitions of the MOC competency categories to make them pathology specific; the College identified specific competencies for each MOC category. The CAP intends this model to serve as a guide for pathologists in planning CME, career planning, meeting MOC requirements, preparing for board recertification, practice re-tooling, and/or targeting performance improvement.
The CAP Competency Model organizes the 6 MOC categories into two main categories: Medical Knowledge/Patient Care and Technical/Non-Technical. This organizational approach makes it easy to identify medical competency areas from other critical competencies such as business acumen, people management, and communication skills.
Each competency is organized into a hierarchical structure. The page begins with the ABMS MOC competency category name and definition. That is followed by the CAP competency name, competency definition, sub-competencies (if applicable), competency areas and knowledge and skill statements.
