The Pathology Section of the National Medical Association is committed to increasing representation and recognition of African Americans and other underrepresented minorities while making an impact on the field of Pathology. The section has a goal to provide mentoring relationships and share educational content to ensure best practices with regard to anatomic pathology and laboratory medicine.
The Pathology Section of the NMA has a number of standing committees, each with its own way to help expand the section's mission.
Beginning in 2020, the Future of Pathology Award was established to honor undergraduate students, medical students, residents, and fellows with a special interest in Pathology. This committee helps advertise and complete the selection process to help encourage the future generation of Pathologists.
