Many faculty members are involved in extra departmental activities with committee assignments at the county, state and national levels. These include leadership roles in county medical societies, state specialty organizations and national organizations such as the College of American Pathologists. The involvement of the faculty helps draw the pathology trainees into the mainstream of organized medicine, and makes them aware of their obligation to the community early in their careers.
