Featured Physician Entrepreneur: Dr. Robert Corrato

I'm starting a new series here on called the "Featured Physician" series. This will be a weekly blog post (published on Fridays) where I will feature a physician entrepreneur or a physician executive. In many cases, the featured physician will an entrepreneur and an executive (it's difficult to be an entrepreneur without being an executive). By featuring a specific physician each week, I'll give you the opportunity to learn how each of these successful individuals created an alternative career path outside of traditional medicine. I hope you'll enjoy reading these stories. For me, they're insightful and inspiring.

Today's featured physician is Robert R. Corrato, MD, MBA and he's the President & CEO of Executive Health Resources (EHR). I had the chance to meet him earlier this week when I attended a reception organized by EHR.  Here's a snippet from the EHR website:
Dr. Robert Corrato founded EHR in 1997 and has since served as EHR’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Prior to founding EHR, Dr. Corrato held the post of Deputy Director of the Office of Health Policy and Clinical Outcomes at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pa. An internist with extensive outpatient, inpatient, academic and community-based clinical practice experience, he is one of only six physicians in the U.S. to have completed medical fellowship training in managed care/administrative medicine. Dr. Corrato often serves as a featured speaker at healthcare industry events, has been published in leading healthcare journals, including the Journal of the American Medical Association, sits on the editorial boards of numerous healthcare publications, and has served as a peer reviewer for the Annals of Internal Medicine. Dr. Corrato earned his master of business administration degree from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and received his medical degree from the Medical College of Pennsylvania.
You can learn more about Dr. Corrato on the EHR website.
