Laboratory medicine, also termed "clinical pathology," is a field of medical science that encompasses all laboratory disciplines applied to health care, education, and research.

The members of the Academy of Clinical Laboratory Physicians and Scientists believe that the role of laboratory medicine will continue to grow in importance; that it is a field in which professional competence, dedication, and scholarship are required; and that the promise and importance of this field in the realm of medical education are so great that the best abilities and talents must be attracted to it so it may fully realize its potential.

ACLPS is a cooperating society of the American Board of Pathology and publishes The American Journal of Clinical Pathology in conjunction with the American Society for Clinical Pathology.
