Louisa Chen

“I am pursuing an MD-MBA to understand not only the clinical but also the large scale strategic and organizational needs underpinning our increasingly complex medical system. Unifying the perspectives and skillsets gained from both degrees will allow me to create systemic change and implement the highest quality patient centered care. I ultimately aim to mitigate inequitable determinants of health and increase access to healthcare for underserved communities.”

~Louisa Chen, MD-MBA Candidate, Class of 2021

Rui Zhang

“I am pursuing the MD-MBA degree for three reasons: data, team, and leadership. On data: Healthcare is and always will be swamped with complex information. I want to gain quantitative skills to derive meaning from data to ultimately make better clinical decisions. On team: Healthcare is delivered by teams of diverse individuals from wide-ranging personal, cultural, and professional backgrounds. I want to learn relevant people skills to maximize the effectiveness of teamwork. On leadership: Healthcare is a wonderful field spearheaded by leaders from all levels. I want to develop leadership skills ranging from self-awareness to group-motivation to better serve my colleagues and my future patients.”

“The American multi-payer healthcare system that leaves 28 million uninsured fails to meet the needs of society but amounts to nearly one-fifth of national spending. An advocate for single-payer healthcare, I chose the MD-MBA joint degree for the industry knowledge and skillset needed to lead a health policy solution that balances cost, efficacy, and social good.”
