Physicians with MD, MBA in their future
Here I am with some of the physicians and clinicians enrolled in the Healthcare Executive MBA (HCEMBA) program at UC Irvine’s Paul Merage School of Business.
I was there last week as an invited speaker to lead a workshop, “Career Strategies for Physicians and Healthcare Leaders.” What a great group of people!— and an excellent MBA program.
The purpose of the workshop was to help the clinicians think about how to position themselves effectively “after the MBA.”
A piece of advice I often give my clients—many of whom have an MBA—is that the MBA is not a magic ticket. Your career clarity and career traction come as a result of your willingness to implement a handful of actions that have very little to do with the MBA.
In this issue of Daring Doctors, I share a career exploration exercise with you that I led the HCEMBA students through.
