The Missouri Society of Pathologists was originally formed in 1969 as a 501(c)(6) nonprofit corporation so it has now been the only statewide organization dedicated to representing Missouri Pathologists for 42 years. MSP leadership represents most areas of Missouri to help further geographic representation and input on topics for MSP growth and advocacy.
The Society has always had a strong educational focus with lectures on anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, pathology practice management and government affairs at Annual Meetings. The Annual Meetings have typically been held together with the Missouri State Medical Association Annual Meetings that rotate annually between Kansas City and St. Louis to facilitate attendance from Pathologists from around the entire state.
Charitable work is an important activity for the MSP. The William R. Bynum, M.D. Education Fund was established by a large donation from Dr. Bynum, a Pathologist who saw great value in and need for the education of laboratory personnel. Many other donations were made over a couple decades and the Fund grew to the size where the MSP could start giving two $1000 scholarships to graduating Medical Technologists. Further donations are always welcome; see the Scholarship Tab for more details.
The MSP takes an active role in Missouri politics trying to assure that Pathologists’ interests are kept in appropriate regard. As the only statewide group for Pathologists, the MSP monitors the bills introduced into the State Legislature to look for any conflicts with Pathologists’ concerns. It has also filed its own bills with support from Pathologists around the Missouri.
If you would like to support the MSP by volunteering for a leadership position as an Officer, Director, the new position of Membership Chair, Delegate/Alternate to the CAP House of Delegates or Annual Meeting Coordinator, please indicate that on your membership renewal form or Contact Us.
