“The healthcare landscape is changing and integration is a perfect venue to reach more people. I had already worked in a hospital setting and knew that my training was not enough to navigate the changing systems. The DBH offers training in relevant subjects such as population health management, health equity, legal issues and ethics in healthcare, and entrepreneurship. The breadth and variety of the courses will prepare me to face any challenges I may encounter... I am sure that upon graduation, I will have a solid foundation to be an active change agent in the healthcare landscape.”
