The President’s Award was established so that each year the President and the Executive Committee would have the opportunity to recognize an individual for outstanding service to the Academy and the field of pathology. The award is conferred at the sole discretion of the President without requirement for it to be given annually. It is presented at  the awards ceremony during the Annual Meeting. The awardee is introduced by the President and receives a commemorative trophy.

Selection process: The President nominates an awardee during his or her term as President. This nomination is submitted for approval to the Executive Committee at the time of the Interim Meeting (or earlier).

  The Academy provides:

         – Complimentary registration to the Annual Meeting

The USCAP Education Department

2022 President’s Award

  The Education Department at USCAP has over 30 combined years of experience providing education to public, private, and nonprofit education al groups. Together, they support every education al program that USCAP offers, from the Interactive Microscopy Center to the Annual Meeting. They were critical to the development and execution of the entirely virtual 2021 meeting, which attracted the most attendees in our history, and to this year’s hybrid meeting. They have also been working tirelessly to support an ongoing array of interactive microscopy courses despite the pandemic. For these reasons and many more they are more than deserving of the President’s Award.
