“I have certainly evolved in my thinking throughout the program. Training to be a doctor is an all-encompassing activity so I was very unaware of how the rest of everything worked. Being able to interact with people from such different walks of life has definitely expanded my perspective.”

This has certainly been a very busy period of my life. Working in a hospital during COVID has been mentally and physically exhausting. I also got married and changed my job during this time. Earning my MBA, in fact, became a refreshing break from all the chaos of the hospital and my personal life. I spent most of my free time studying the entirely new topics of finance, accounting, etc. My biggest pillar of support was my team. Without them, it would have been impossible for me to survive. I think the key was prioritizing and focusing on the right thing at the right time and finishing it.

Before Fuqua

After completing my internal medicine residency in New York City, I moved to Hickory, NC where I was working as a hospital physician at Frye Regional Medical Center.

After Fuqua

I will likely continue to practice clinical medicine after Fuqua, but I aspire to be an entrepreneur. There are many problems in health care; I hope I can contribute meaningfully to solving some of them. The biggest thing I have gained from this program is confidence.

5 Tips for Working in Teams

  1. Have a positive attitude; everyone is different and has their own style; understand and respect that.
  2. Pay attention to whether you are imposing on others, or worse, not contributing at all and correct your course.
  3. There will inevitably be one person who will be better at one thing (or all) than the rest; it’s okay for that person to lead that aspect of the project. We had assigned leads on each assignment beforehand.
  4. Studying and doing homework together is the best way to bond with your team members.
  5. There is no substitute to putting in the effort.
