    MHCI Class of 2022

    The Class of 2022 came together from across the health care industry and around the world to form a close network for collaboration, support, and friendship. Those bonds helped them complete a rigorous program even during the COVID-19 pandemic. A blend of established and aspiring leaders, they work as executives, physicians, clinical care managers, growth directors, innovation and program managers, nurses, consultants, researchers, federal agency administrators, pharmacy and finance directors, application analysts, radiology faculty, and surgeons. MHCI alumni work for academic medical centers, health networks, private practice, consulting firms, startups, and federal agencies.
