In order to guarantee our quality and to be recognized as a top performer, we successfully became the first and only laboratory in Iraq to receive accreditation from College of American Pathologists (CAP) on 14/2/2013. This effectively makes us the only internationally recognized medical center in Iraq and means that all the results issued by our center are accepted by the medical community across the globe.
The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is an internationally recognized program that helps laboratories achieve the highest standards of excellence to positively impact patient care. The goal of the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program is to improve patient safety and patient care by advancing the quality of pathology and laboratory services through medical education and laboratory standardization.
The program is based on rigorous accreditation standards that are translated into detailed and focused checklists of regulatory requirements that laboratories have to meet or exceed. These checklists provide quality practice standards for laboratories to follow, and are used by the inspection teams as a guide to assess the overall management and operation of the laboratory. Upon successful completion of the inspection process, the laboratory is awarded CAP accreditation for 2 years and becomes part of an exclusive group of more than 7,000 laboratories worldwide that have met the highest standards of excellence. This thorough inspection is repeated every 2 years and if all requirements are met, accreditation is awarded again.
