The Power List 2019

“As technical barriers, costs, and regulatory hurdles continue to drop over the next five years, I envision that digital interactions among pathologists will include educational and clinical activities that incorporate whole slide images,” says Michael, Director of Surgical Pathology at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, USA. A practitioner whose specialties include gastrointestinal and sarcoma pathology, Michael co-founded an online pathology journal club set up to discuss and scrutinize new research in live sessions on Twitter. Nominators describe him as a trailblazer in pediatric pathology and social media, and Michael’s recent videos on grossing and other aspects of the medical laboratory have made him a viral sensation on Twitter and beyond. He can be found via the #PediPath hashtag, which he uses to contribute to education on pathology and oncology in young patients. “The best pieces of advice I got in training were to not be afraid to try something outside your comfort zone and to always look for new ways to do something. Social media was definitely outside my comfort zone when I started, but it has been worthwhile to meet so many wonderful people and learn so much!”
