MD/MBA Dual Degree Graduate
Coming from a science background, the MBA was foreign soil. Since I could remember, medicine has always been my calling. Never did I consider a career outside the healthcare field. After completing my first clinical year during medical school in the hospital, it became clear that medicine no longer revolved around a single physician. Instead, medicine has evolved into a healthcare team approach centered on patient satisfaction. As a physician, I need to be able to manage and lead a team of residents, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, respiratory therapists, and social workers while providing customer satisfaction to my patients. With this understanding of the current healthcare system, I knew there were attributes I would need to develop outside of my medical skills. Therefore, I made the temporary jump from medical school to the John Cook School of Business.
