Biography - Vinita Parkash, MD

Vinita Parkash, MBBS (amedical degree awarded in several countries outside the U.S.), MPH, is a pathologist, someone who specializes in examining tissues and other body parts in a lab. Dr. Parkash’s area of expertise is gynecological pathology. She is also an active researcher focused on patient safety, including working to improve diagnostic accuracy and enhance communication of test results for patients.

Dr. Parkash believes doctors should openly discuss and learn from medical errors, which can occur when emails aren’t read, when professionals don’t communicate properly to other professionals, or when body tissues pass from professional to professional and become contaminated, she says. These kinds of errors can have significant consequences, particularly in diagnosing diseases like cancer. 

Dr. Parkash’s scholarly work includes contributing to numerous textbooks and articles in peer-reviewed journals. She was also part of the expert panel that developed recommendations for the diagnostic standardization of the pathologic evaluation of uterine cancers.

Dr. Parkash has had various leadership roles in pathology organizations, including the International Society of Gynecological Pathology. She moderates the Gynecological Pathology list-serve, an online group of 200-plus experts in gynecology worldwide.
