Biography :

Dr. Kaminsky assumed responsibilities of the Executive Vice President of the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology on July 1, 2014. Prior to his affiliation with USCAP, he was a community-based pathologist in Palm Springs, California, with an academic perspective focused on education and patient-centered care. He served as Chairman of the Department of Pathology at Eisenhower Medical Center for 28 years and then established a private practice laboratory dedicated to surgical pathology and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy.

During his tenure at the Eisenhower Medical Center, he served on the Board of Directors of the Annenberg Center for Health Sciences where he conceived and launched the teleconference series for the American Society of Cytopathology (ASC), and subsequently, Africa Calls, a distance learning endeavor that brings continuing medical education to 22 sites in Africa, initially funded by the Annenberg Center and now by ASCP. As a pioneer in fine needle aspiration biopsy, he published Aspiration Biopsy for the Community Hospital in 1981 and collaborated with Dr. William J. Frable on numerous lectures and workshops to promote acceptance of aspiration biopsy as a cost-conservative, minimally invasive diagnostic technique.

Dr. Kaminsky served as President of the American Society of Cytopathology and received the Papanicolaou Award and the President’s Award. He was the inaugural President of the ASC Foundation. He is past-President and a current active Board member of the California Society of Pathologists. He has lectured throughout the world on fine needle aspiration biopsy, and is the 2015 recipient of the Yolanda Oertel Interventional Cytopathologist of the Year Award of the Papanicolaou Society and the 2016 recipient of the Maurice Goldblatt Cytology Award of the International Academy of Cytology.
