Lahoti reappointed to Texas Medical Board District Review Committee
Gov. Greg Abbott has reappointed Sheela Lahoti, MD, professor in the Department of Pediatrics and assistant dean of Admissions and Student Affairs, to the Texas Medical Board District One Review Committee.
“As a member of the Texas Medical Board District One Review Committee, I am happy to be able to serve the Texas Medical Board in their mission to protect and enhance the welfare of all Texans,” Lahoti said. “In my role, I assist in reviewing complaints as the board works to regulate and ensure that Texas physicians provide quality health care.”
The Texas Medical Board District Review Committees evaluate medical practice and professional competency, and make recommendations on investigations conducted by the board. Districts are comprised of counties in four geographic regions of the state.
Each of the four committees consists of seven members: three physician members who are doctors of medicine (MD), one physician member who is a doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO), and three public members.
Lahoti received her bachelor of science in biology from the University of Miami and a doctor of medicine from the University of Miami School of Medicine. She completed a residency and fellowship at the University of Chicago Hospitals in 1994 and 1995, respectively.
