International Affairs Committee

Rami Mahfouz, MD, MPH (Chair)
American University of Beirut Medical Center, Lebanon

The International Affairs Committee was established in 2010 as a Working Group and became an ad hoc committee in 2015 and a standing committee in 2019. The Committee endeavors to advance molecular pathology around the globe through educational and professional activities.

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 50 countries and all continents except Antarctica. The Committee endeavors to advance molecular pathology and expand AMP membership outside of North America.
