FOR SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T KNOW YOU, HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ROLE AND CONTRIBUTION TO HEALTH?

 

I wear many hats at USF Health, but the primary role and responsibility that I have is to be the chief clinical officer. My job is to ensure our physicians, faculty, and support staff provide the highest quality care to our patients at USF. I’m also the CEO of our practice plan, which means that I ensure our business operations and support staff deliver the highest quality care in the best possible way to our patients.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT CHALLENGES HAVE YOU FACED ON THE ROAD TO YOUR PRESENT CAREER?

I think, like anybody who has entered the medical profession, there’s a lot of delayed gratification and a lot of sacrifices. Their sacrifices are for a really beneficial goal. Being a doctor or being in health care is wonderful. It’s a great privilege, but it requires a lot of responsibility. Responsibility for your education and studying hard, but then also making sure you have clear priorities and sometimes those priorities conflict with things like work-life balance and your family. I think it’s important that people who enter the medical profession have a sense of a calling or a mission for why they do what they do, because that provides really great motivation for working hard and trying to achieve your goals.

 

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A YOUNG MEDICAL STUDENT OR YOUR YOUNGER SELF?

I would just say, study hard, work hard. Your training is really a short period of time. It may not feel that way, but it’s a very short period of time to learn a tremendous amount of information. You’ll never know that day in medical school when you remembered something how that may pay dividends in your future. So I think the value of hard work and prioritization and making sure that you do the things you need to do to be successful would be the advice I’d usually at least try to give to people — and then model that.

In an academic center, you have an opportunity to share what you’ve learned and what you’ve seen with trainees and it really forces you to be the best physician, the best teacher you can be."
