Healthcare opportunities at Emory
Hello. I’m Skywalker in the second grade. I don’t know if it really exists, but how are you doing, readers? I? I’m sloppy, of course.
It is presumed that MBA examinees at this time are living a stressful life anyway, such as those who have almost finished the application and are in the middle of preparing for Interview or those who are looking forward to Interview’s Invitation and are in agony. .. Today, I would like to write for such people under the theme of “Learning Opportunities in the Healthcare Field at Emory,” which is a little late but often asked. By the way, my background is not health care at all, but for some reason I am now in charge of health care among school students. The world is unreasonable. I also researched various things that I don’t understand, so please read it.
Now, let’s start with the healthcare-related learning opportunities explicitly announced by the school. As you may know, Emory has a Dual Degree called MBA / MPH. It requires one Semester more than a regular MBA, but MPH alone is a prestigious program that ranks fifth in US News, where you’ll learn about healthcare-specific statistics, epidemiology, and the insurance system. can do. The member of my core team was originally an IB, but I majored in this Dual Degree because I wanted to be extremely interested in the fields of healthcare and finance. Also, even if you do not take a Dual Degree, there are healthcare classes in the MBA itself. Below is an example.
・ The Business of Healthcare This is a class to learn about the American healthcare system, especially the medical insurance system.・ Healthcare Org Tech Management It is unclear whether this class has been offered for the past two years, but it is a class that deals with operational improvement measures for hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, analysis of business expansion plans, innovation, etc.・ IMPACT 360 Healthcare Emory This is one of the IMPACT (please see here if you don’t know) of the signboard class, and it is a class that provides consulting to Emory Hospital.
Of these, I took IMPACT 360 Healthcare. The theme changes every year, but I did an operational analysis of the remote treatment that Emory was trying to introduce at the time. Many MPH / MBA and MD / MBA students are also taking this course, and you can get knowledge about Healthcare from the team. By the way, about this class, there is also an article about specific activity contents in this past log, so please have a look.
In addition, there is Goizueta Healthcare Association as a club activity, holding case competitions, etc. I do not know much details, but it seems that there is also an Emory University / Georgia Tech Healthcare Innovation Program .
The information up to this point can be found on the Web, etc., so for those who are not familiar with such things, the next step is related to hidden health care. As you can see in this article , Atlanta is also a region where healthcare startups gather in the United States alone due to the presence of Emory and CDC. Also, although Nashville is mentioned first in the above article, Nashville’s Startup may in fact seek investment opportunities from Atlanta’s distance and its presence as the largest city in the South. , At Emory, there are so many opportunities to get involved with healthcare startups.
For example, in a class called Entrepreneurial Practicum that I took in the semester last year (see here for an overview of the class), there were consulting opportunities for companies such as IoT platform companies for medical institutions and smart pill companies, and pitch events called Raise Forum. I had the opportunity to evaluate companies that are developing Handy Imaging Devices for orthopedics and medication management APPs. According to the professor, nearly 70% of Startups applying for the event are related to healthcare.
Also, even outside the university, many applications from healthcare startups have arrived at the VC I am currently doing as an intern, and I am evaluating them. In addition, my summer intern I found with an Emory MBA graduate serving as CEO was Startup, which provides a patient engagement platform for hospitals, and three other companies in its Coworking Office. Healthcare Startup was enrolled. As mentioned above, there are numerous opportunities to interact with healthcare startups in Atlanta / Emory.
What did you think? Even I, who did not intentionally try to get involved in health care, is in this situation, so I think it is a great school for those who have a high interest in health care. We hope that this article will be of some help to all of the applicants. If you have any questions about the content, please contact the following address. Well then!
