The Ohio Society of Pathologists (OSP) is a not-for-profit organization composed of almost 300 physicians dedicated to the promotion of the field of pathology in the state of Ohio.

Our members are involved in leadership positions at the local, city, state, and national levels. The Ohio Society of Pathologists is very active in the areas of continuing education, quality assurance, and the legislative and socioeconomic aspects of the practice of pathology.

OSP does not directly provide clinical services, including any form of testing or post-mortem examination.
