Lawrie Bott appointed new RCPA president

Sonic Pathology Australia chief medical officer Lawrie Bott has been appointed as the new president of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA), succeeding Waikato DHB anatomical pathologist Michael Dray.

Dr Bott and Dr Dray served as RCPA vice president and president between 2019 and 2021, during what has been one of the most challenging periods for the pathology sector due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Before his appointment as Sonic Pathology CMO in 2017, Dr Bott was previously CEO for Southern IML Pathology in Wollongong, CEO of Diagnostic Services Tasmania, and CEO at Barratt & Smith Pathology.

He has served on multiple committees for the college, including its pathology informatics committee, which ushered in the Pathology Information, Terminology and Units Standardisation (PITUS) project.
