Healthcare Management Interests:

A joint MD/MBA degree has introduced me to healthcare innovation, strategy, operations, delivery, marketing, economics, and policy.

Specialty: Emergency Medicine

Healthcare Management Interests:

My aspiration to enter into healthcare management initially stemmed from my experience of being in an immigrant family that was lost and falling through the cracks of various healthcare organizations. My experiences from my childhood and now through my medical education have inspired me to be a part of the process in creating change that results in improved patient outcomes and satisfaction. I feel excited to become involved in healthcare management because I feel passionate for creating positive change in our healthcare organizations as we strive to provide superb patient care.
