MCiM represents an ideal opportunity for emerging leaders in healthcare innovation to acquire knowledge and master management skills to lead digital innovations driving healthcare transformation. What attracted me to MCiM is the distinct benefit of leveraging Stanford's rich experience in clinical medicine, technology management, data analytics, ethical insights, business models, strategy optimization, and entrepreneurship. Bridging the cultures of business, technology, and medicine at one of the pinnacles of innovation, Stanford, in the heart of Silicon Valley is second to none and of immense network value. As an Ophthalmologist with a track record in digital health, startup involvement, and an interest in elevating patient experience and reducing inequity through disruption, MCiM was a logical choice for advancing my career to the next level in the era of AI. Alumni have stated that MCiM is analogous to an accelerated MBA in health tech for working professionals. I already realize the tremendous potential of this master's education, its diverse resources and the profound milieu found at Stanford.
