"I am extremely honored and humbled to have been elected President of the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology," Schnitt said. "In my view, this is the greatest honor that can be bestowed upon an anatomic pathologist."
During his presidency, the centennial meeting of the North American International Academy of Pathology and USCAP will commence.
"I am chairing a planning committee that will organize a number of special events including a Centennial Banquet at which Sir Ken Robinson will be the speaker and an art show at which art produced by pathologists from around the world will be displayed, among other events," Schnitt said. "In addition, we hope to implement a number of new initiatives that have been formulated by the USCAP Long Term Strategic Planning Committee, including new and innovative ways for delivering the Academy's educational offerings. Finally, the current Executive Vice President of the Academy will be retiring in the summer of 2011 and I am involved in the search committee to find his successor."
