"PEMBA has given me the opportunity to network with other physicians worldwide who share common goals, and I have taken on additional leadership roles in my career since graduating. When faced with a problem, I can use the toolkit that I learned through classwork assignments and collaboration with colleagues. In medical school and practice, physicians tend to work in silos without accountability groups. However, PEMBA has a structured mechanism for personal and professional development. The most practical impact of PEMBA is the opportunity to have professors as “consultants” for a year. This presents a unique opportunity for return on investment, both for organizational and professional development. I am a lifelong learner, and PEMBA captures that environment."
