Vale Dr Michael Metz

04 October 2018

It is with great sadness that I write to inform you of the passing of Dr Michael Metz. Dr Metz was well known to many at SA Pathology.

A Chemical Pathologist, Michael was internationally recognised in his field of paediatric and hereditary biochemical disorders, having chaired the IFCC Task Force on Paediatric Laboratory Medicine for a number of years. He was passionate about pathology, and was widely regarded for his commitment to patient care and teaching in clinical medicine and pathology.

Michael will be sadly missed. I extend condolences to Michael’s family and all his friends and colleagues, especially at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital and SA Pathology.

Dr Glenn Edwards
Executive Director
