Razvan Lapadat, MD
Year of Graduation: 1993
I was born and raised in Romania and graduated from “Carol Davila” University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest. During my medical school training I became interested in applying laboratory and computer investigational methods in clinical practice. These very facts led me to my interest in pathology. After graduation I worked as a basic research scientist at National Jewish and University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver and at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center where I gained experience in the fields of in Immunology, Bioinformatics and Molecular Pathology. I started my residency training in 2009 at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago and transferred to the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2011 to join my family in Milwaukee.
I developed an interest in Transfusion Medicine as a PGY-1 resident and am fortunate to be part of a program with a long tradition of training residents for Transfusion Medicine practice and research.
I’m happy to belong to the resident group here at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Our program strongly supports translational research and is dedicated to providing outstanding patient care.
Milwaukee is a fantastic place to live. It offers all of the opportunities of a big city, but with the feel of a smaller town. Summer is great and festivals are organized for any occasion. My wife and I love taking our son to the Lake Front and the Art Museum downtown, as well as to the state parks in the surrounding area.
Outside medicine, I enjoy hiking, going to concerts, gardening and airplane modeling.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about our program here.
