The Power List 2019

Michael Laposata

Michael is Professor and Chair of the Department of Pathology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. He was instrumental in creating a diagnostic management team within his institution, a patient-centric process whereby pathologists are consulted to ensure the correct diagnostic tests are ordered. A leader in patient safety, he is eternally committed to the identification and prevention of diagnostic errors. His biggest inspiration? “Lockard Conley embraced me and became my career advocate when I was doing research in a hematology lab the summer before medical school; he built the foundation for my career!”
