Vanderbilt Executive MBA 2008
Senior Vice President, HCA
As Chief Medical Officer at Centennial Medical Center, Dr. Ravi Chari is on the leading edge of medical care. Among a number of other advanced procedures, Dr. Chari is a well-known expert in minimally invasive, laparoscopic surgeries now used in treating cancer of the liver, pancreas and bile duct.
But the leading edge of health care is also rapidly shifting—and demanding leaders with the expertise to bridge the business and clinical worlds. That's why he pursued a Vanderbilt Executive MBA.
"Health care is on the threshold of significant change where science and management will together shape process and performance," he says. "My Executive MBA experience at Owen has enabled me to acquire stronger financial vision and leadership skills, and to participate in decisions that will influence the future of health care."
