I had never thought I would go to business school. I’m a physical therapist by initial training. I have been in healthcare all along. I worked with a pharmaceutical company headquartered in Bombay. I’m really interested in enhancing patient experience in hospitals, and particularly focusing on resource management within healthcare systems. That’s really what encouraged me to get an MBA.

I was very pleasantly surprised to learn that Booth actually has a lot of resources if you want to work in healthcare. Along with my MBA, I’m also part of the GPHAP program. It’s the Graduate Program in Health Administration and Policy. There’s multiple schools at the university that participate. Students form the Law School, from the Med School, from the School of Social Services Administration, and from the School of Public Policy.

We are working with scholar. They give you an actual live dataset, you generate an output and you meet the recommendation. We are working with doctors. This morning, I was in the operating room at the University of Chicago Medical Center wearing scrubs with my classmates looking in on a bypass surgery. Having that kind of access, not just to professional resources, but in terms of learning, I think is very important. Things at Booth are very student-driven. It’s a harmonious bunch of people. Once I knew that, Booth immediately became one of my top choices. Booth can give you whatever you want.
