For the past decade, T. Michael Preston, though not a physician, has been the face and voice of the state's doctors as executive director of MedChi, the state medical society. Before that, he was a lawyer handling malpractice cases - on the defense side. Reform of the malpractice system has been a key issue during his tenure. Other issues, too, have centered on questions of quality and accountability. He was a key player when the state restructured its Board of Physicians in 2003. The board investigates cases in which physicians are accused of harming patients.
