EVMS’ Biorepository Earns Accreditation From College Of American Pathologists


The College of American Pathologists has awarded accreditation to Eastern Virginia Medical School’s Biorepository based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of CAP’s Accreditation Program, making EVMS the only academic health center in Virginia with a CAP-accredited biorepository and only the second medical facility in the commonwealth to earn this distinction.

“Obtaining CAP accreditation implies our commitment to maintaining quality, accuracy, procedural consistency, best practices and evidence-based standards that directly improve outcomes for our research community,” says Dr. Laurie Wellman, associate professor of Pathology and Anatomy, and the biorepository’s director.
