The International Academy of Pathology in its second century continues to serve the educational needs of Pathologists worldwide. The USCAP and other
IAP Divisions present educational programs to meet the personal and locally defined needs of their members. Each of the 45 IAP Divisions, operating
in its own area provides programs to meet Pathologists needs. A biennial IAP Congress is approved by Council to assure proposals from IAP Divisions
to meet locally defined needs and to attract the appropriate mix of local and global expert Pathologist presenters.
The USCAP has hosted The Knowledge Hub for Pathology for a decade and provides the most current, authenticated and validated iterative knowledge to
members worldwide. A decade ago in its first year the web site had 2.2 million hits. In 2011, the site received 74million hits from an average of
more than 20,000 unique visitors/Pathologists per month from 163 countries. The Knowledge Hub has been joined by 15 IAP Division websites to provide
the world’s most comprehensive source of current Pathology Knowledge.
