The USCAP Ambassador Program

The re-imagined Ambassador Program is designed to achieve connectivity with future generations of pathologists. Engagement of pathologists-in-training as members for life in USCAP is critical to their career development and to becoming better pathologists.

Ambassadors function to communicate to pathologists-in-training the value of membership in USCAP, engaging their interest, participation, and loyalty. The educators, committee members/chairs, and governance of USCAP derive from committed pathologists-in-training whose evolving maturity leads to the experience and confidence to assume these active roles.

157 Ambassadors and Growing
Now in it’s fourth year, USCAP has more than 150 ambassadors representing the United States and beyond.
