The Pathologist has just announced its 2022 Power List, which honors 75 of the most outstanding and inspirational pathology and laboratory medicine professionals in five categories: Ready for Take Off, Ground Control, Voyage of Discovery, First Contact, and Strange New Worlds.

Dr. Swikrity Upadhyay Baskota, MD, Assistant Professor of Pathology and Cell Biology at CUMC, is honored under the category First Contact. Her profile, as presented by The Pathologist, is as follows.

"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.”

Congratulations to Dr. Baskota for achieving this remarkable recognition!
