USCAP Leadership Update


USCAP has announced the retirement of its Executive Vice President, Dr. David Kaminsky, effective November 1, 2021. Dr. Kaminsky served as EVP since 2014.

USCAP is grateful to Dr. Kaminsky for his many years of service to the Academy and respects his decision to retire and spend more time with his family.

Dr. Kaminsky stated, “Working with USCAP for the past seven years has been a remarkable experience that enriched my life through relationships, creative expression, and involvement in academic excellence provided by dedicated faculty, leadership, and staff. I’m proud of my contributions, particularly the new international headquarters and learning centers, confident that the Academy will continue to evolve.”

Under his leadership, the organization has grown its membership significantly, promoted pathology education in the US, Canada, and the rest of the world, and built a new world-class headquarters and Interactive Learning Center.

Dr. Laura Lamps, President of the Board, observed that “David’s creativity, vision, and energy literally transformed the Academy. His legacy will continue in many ways, not the least of which is the Interactive Learning Center, which is the only facility of its kind in the world. We look forward to many generations of pathologists benefitting from the educational programs offered here.”

Dr. Kaminsky leaves the Academy in a good financial position and ready to continue its mission.

The Board has appointed a search committee, which will begin the process for identifying the next Executive Vice President in the near future. In the interim, Claire Kilfoyle (Director of Education) and Paul Lewin (Chief Operating Officer) will serve as interim Executive Vice Presidents.
