The Power List 2015

Michael Wells

“I am motivated to strive for excellence in my specialty, gynecological pathology, for the benefit of the patients we serve,” says Mike. Now an emeritus professor, he recently retired as professor of gynecological pathology at the University of Sheffield in the UK and honorary consultant histopathologist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. He holds a Platinum National Health Service Clinical Excellence Award and maintains a part-time histopathology consultancy at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. He has written and contributed to numerous textbooks, acts as the editor of the journal Histopathology and is on the editorial boards of Virchows Archiv, Gynecologic Oncology and the International Journal of Gynecological Pathology. Mike also holds numerous positions in professional associations – including as a director of the International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting and as a member of the European Society of Pathology, the Gynecological Visiting Society of Great Britain and Ireland, and the Education Committee of the International Academy of Pathology. His former positions include presidencies in the British Division of the International Academy of Pathology, the British Gynecological Cancer Society, the International Society of Gynecological Pathologists, and the European Society of Pathology, among many other leadership roles. But despite his many titles, Mike says, “The highlight of my career was being made a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The professional recognition of my clinical colleagues means a lot to me.”
