Though the majority of AMP members reside in the U.S., the AMP founding members desired to create a global organization. Today, AMP members can be found in all continents except Antarctica. The AMP Internation Affairs Working Group endeavors to advance molecular pathology and expand AMP membership outside of North America.
AMP members who are on organizing committees of conferences outside of North America are invited to apply for AMP sponsorship and support for speaker travel. Contact AMP for more information.
