Swikrity U Baskota

Over the past few years, Swikrity has become well-known on social media for her passion for medical education and proactive advocacy for pathology trainees and candidates. She is Assistant Professor, Cytopathologist, and Surgical Pathologist in the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. What sparked Swikrity’s interest in lab medicine? “A pathologist’s ability to make a diagnosis and guide clinical management and therapeutic decisions,” she says. “It gave me a feeling of pathologists as a ‘cornerstone of clinical medicine’ during my intern year. Then and there, I knew I was going to be a pathologist.”
