About me

My name is Dr. Michele N. Lossius and I work as a pediatric hospital medicine division chief here at UF Health. I obtained my undergraduate and medical degrees from UF and completed residency training in pediatrics at UF Health Shands Hospital. In 2006, I joined the faculty in the UF College of Medicine department of pediatrics in the division of pediatric critical care. I was promoted to division chief of pediatric hospital medicine in 2013 and served as the physician director of quality and safety for pediatrics. In 2019 I assumed the role the chief quality officer for UF Health Shands.

I am proud to have spearheaded novel and innovative programs in education and safety. I participated in TeamStepps Master Training and AAMC Teaching for Quality training. I also completed the Patient Safety Executive Development Program at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and the Intermountain Advanced Training Program in HealthCare Delivery Improvement.

Clinically, I am involved with national projects related to bronchiolitis management, adverse drug events and fever in the neonate. My success in these areas led to invitations to coach and then lead the subsequent national initiatives addressing the care of patients with bronchiolitis by the American Academy of Pediatrics. As the pediatrics physician director of quality and safety, I have worked to reduce variation in care, decrease length of stay, establish protocols and develop strong working relationships across the institution.

I was inspired to pursue medicine from a young age. I started volunteering in Junior High at Womack Army Hospital. I went into medicine for the NICU but loved all the ages so hospital medicine was a natural fit. Today, I am to provide high quality healthcare and to help patients heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
