About the Association for Academic Pathology

The Association for Academic Pathology (AAPath) is a non-profit society, which serves as the voice of academic departments of Pathology in the U.S. and Canada. AAPath exists to provide leadership and advocacy for the dynamic discipline of Pathology and to enable academic departments to meet the demands of their three missions: medical education, research, and practice. The AAPath provides education, training, information resources, and networking opportunities for chairs, residency program directors (through PRODS), medical student educators (through UMEDS), department administrators (through APEX), and program coordinators (through GMEAS).
