INDIANAPOLIS – Recent graduates from the Business of Medicine MBA Program at the Kelley School of Business have donated more than $127,000 to endow an annual lecture series for alumni and current students.
Funds will be used to create a lecture series that will bring in a high-profile speaker with open access for Physician MBA alumni. The annual series will be incorporated into a new course offered this year in the Business of Medicine MBA Program, entitled Current Issues in Business of Medicine. The course will offer lectures featuring prominent healthcare thought leaders who will address some of the most pressing issues in healthcare today.
“This significant gift will allow the Kelley School to bring in more high-caliber, national thought leaders, like health system CEOs and policy makers, to enhance the way physicians are thinking and learning in the program,” said Phil Powell, associate dean of academic programs at the Kelley School of Business Indianapolis. “This lecture series provides an education and engagement you can’t get in the classroom. It provokes discussion, and if you’re an alum, it helps re-engage the thought process you received in the Business of Medicine MBA Program.”
