Medicine and Business

Make sure to read this article from "Bench and Bedside," the Stanford University School of Medicine Alumni Association Magazine. The article is titled, "Medicine Gets Down (and Up) to Business" and it highlights several highly-accomplished venture capitalists like Victor Perlroth, MD ’00, MBA ’01: The Serial Entrepreneur and innovators like Meetpaul Singh, ’96, MS ’97, MD ’00, MBA ’04: The Technology Innovator. The article also highlights the accomplishments of Kevin Grimes, MD, MBA ’93: The Mentor and Coach and Alexa Bisinger, MD candidate ’11, MBA candidate ’11: The Flexible GenNexter.

Notice a common theme here? These are all MD/MBA students or graduates. If you didn't get an MBA during medical school, it's never too late to go back to business school to pursue an MBA. That's what I'm doing.

Does your medical school offer a dual MD/MBA degree? If so, then I'm sure you'll also find some interesting articles in your alumni magazine or newsletter. Please share those with us so that we can highlight those stories here on

Given that the article was published last year, I'm sure that some of these folks are probably engaged in different ventures by now. That's the common theme among entrepreneurial, business-minded individuals who are actively seizing new opportunities in this rapidly-evolving world of health care.
