Alumni Advisory Council

Each graduating class selects an Outstanding Class Leader and an Outstanding Service to the Class recipient. These individuals are invited to serve on the Alumni Advisory Council. The council meets during the annual Physician Leadership Symposium and virtually (via conference call) one to two times each year. It reviews and suggests marketing strategies and provides insight for curriculum changes.


Policy Immersion Trip - PEMBA alumni are invited to travel with EMBA in Healthcare Leadership students to Washington, D.C. each spring to learn about the intersection of healthcare policy, business and government.

Physician Leadership Symposium - Each April, the Physician Leadership Symposium focuses on the latest research and most pressing issues of the business of medicine. Alumni, students, and visitors gain practical knowledge about what matters most. There are ample networking opportunities with fellow physician leaders and industry recruiters. Registration is complimentary and is one of the ways the program delivers value as a lifelong source of learning.
