MBA/MPH Alumni Spotlight

The Impact of a Combined MBA/MPH Degree in the Evolution of Health Care

"It is undisputable that there has been quite an overhaul with changes to the delivery of health care in recent years. It is also clear that there is a serious need in professionals who are equipped with the knowledge to handle the many issues we currently face and to adequately carry out those changes. The need for unique professionals who have the ability to solve complex health care problems to make it more accessible, affordable and effective, especially for the underserved population is what drew me to this program.

Stony Brook University recognized early on the need for educating individuals with this unique set of skills and thus I was given the opportunity to be the first graduate of the university’s combined MBA/MPH program. After learning a great deal in the classroom and through projects in the field, I was able to take my degrees and experience to an institution in Brooklyn where I worked in hospital administration and made a significant impact in not only the improvement in efficiency and cost effectiveness but also health care delivery by creating innovative solutions for an underserved population. This achievement allowed me to appreciate that I wanted to impact health care quality directly as a physician as well and use the knowledge/experience that I gained both at Stony Brook and in the work force to help solve the important health care questions we face today. I will be completing medical school in May 2015 and will be using the experience I gained at Stony Brook University in my future practice as a physician leader."
