Although the majority of AMP members reside in the U.S., the AMP founding members desired to create a global organization. Today, AMP International Affairs Committee members and International Affiliates can be found in more than 45 countries and all continents except Antarctica as seen on this Google map. The Committee endeavors to advance molecular pathology and expand AMP membership outside of North America.
