2017 President’s Message

Dear CAPA Members,

It is my great honor and privilege to serve you as the CAPA president for 2017-2018. Since its establishment in 2003, and with continuous and collective efforts from our presidents, officers of all subcommittees, and all active members, CAPA has become a nationally and internationally recognized pathologist organization with over 600 members today.

CAPA consists of a very broad membership in both academic and private practice, in both AP and CP, with experienced and “young” pathologists.  As a group, we are extremely accomplished, with many nationally and internationally known pathologists and tenured professors in major medical centers.  We have had members serve as department chairs and directors for anatomic pathology in top US/Canadian universities, directors for residency and fellowship programs across the country, and directors/business owners in various settings of private practices.   Continue reading
