Physician Careers: Clinical Management - Dr. Christopher Baugh (MD/MBA 8th AMMP Conference)

Here's a video of a presentation given by Dr. Christopher Baugh at the 8th Annual AMMP conference titled, "Careers: Clinical Management." I blogged about his presentation (here) back in April when I was in Boston attending the Association of MD/MBA Programs (AMMP) 8th Annual Conference.

Now, you can view a video of his presentation and slides here (you'll need Microsoft Silverlight to play the video).

Christopher Baugh, MD, MBA
Medical Director, ED Observation Unit
Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dr. Baugh moved to the East Coast for college, where he has remained for the past fifteen years. As an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins University, he graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. in Biology and minor in Economics while earning All-American honors in football and multiple research grants from the Howard Hughes Foundation and Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, among others. His education continued at the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated AOA from medical school while earning an MBA from Wharton Business School. While at Penn, Dr. Baugh worked for both GlaxoSmithKline and McKinsey & Company during summer sessions. After graduating from the MD/MBA program, Dr. Baugh came to Boston, where he completed a four-year Emergency Medicine residency at Brigham and Women's and Massachusetts General Hospitals. During his residency, Dr. Baugh's publications included a financial analysis of Observation Medicine which introduced the novel valuation concept of options modeling to this area of practice. Academic interests also include healthcare quality, and Dr. Baugh has served on the national American College of Emergency Medicine's Quality and Performance Committee for the past two years.
After completing residency last summer, Dr. Baugh accepted a full time academic faculty position in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Since taking on this new position, in addition to working as a full-time clinician, he has become the Medical Director of the ED Observation Unit - a closed, 10-bed unit contained within the ED which serves about six thousand patients per year who need up to 24 hours for further treatment and diagnostics after an initial ED evaluation. Currently, Dr. Baugh is also leading the clinical operations planning behind the new Brigham and Women's Urgent Care Center at Patriot Place, set to open in Foxboro, MA in August 2010. Dr. Baugh lives in Wellesley, MA with his wife, Amy, and their two children, Sydney and Alexander.
