MMM Testimonials

We asked a recent MMM cohort to describe the value that the program adds to a physician's portfolio. They had a lot to say.

The MMM degree facilitated a very rapid progression in my career trajectory. The CEO and executive team at Novant Health took notice that I was in the program, and subsequently I was approached to consider a Senior VP role as part of their succession planning. The MMM experience helped prepare me, connected me with a network of like-minded leaders, and gave me tools to successfully face the myriad challenges I would experience. I now serve in both market and system roles, and help lead our readmission reduction and clinical variation reduction teams. As a Senior Vice-President for Medical Staff Services, I work closely with the facility presidents, chief nursing officers, and VP of Professional Support Services. I thoroughly enjoy my work, and am grateful for Heinz College's MMM program and its role in creating the opportunity.
