Test Development and Advisory Committees (TDAC) for 2020


ABPath would like to thank our hard-working volunteers on the Test Development and Advisory Committees (TDACs) and welcome our newly appointed members for 2020. The TDACs are responsible for developing and reviewing the ABPath certification exam questions that assess and certify a physician’s knowledge, judgment, and skills in order to provide high-quality care in the pathology profession.  To be appointed to a TDAC means a physician is an established subject matter expert in their subspecialty field and is current on the latest advances in the continually evolving field of pathology and patient care.

There are presently 14 ABPath TDACs. They are: Anatomic Pathology, Anatomic Pathology CertLink®, Blood Banking/Transfusion Medicine, Chemical Pathology, Clinical Pathology CertLink®, Management and Informatics, Cytopathology, Dermatopathology (with appointees from the American Board of Dermatology), Forensic Pathology, Hematopathology, Medical Microbiology, Molecular Genetic Pathology (with appointees from the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics), Neuropathology, and Pediatric Pathology.

We greatly appreciate the time and dedication of each of our members!
