From MD to MBA

Originally from India, Amod Amritphale came to the U.S. for an internal medicine residency at the University of Nevada School of Medicine. Amritphale had the desire to become a physician after seeing his friend collapse in the sixth grade. “The [rescue] team’s effort inspired me. Seeing if we work as a team, we can really save someone's life – that was kind of a trigger point.” Following his residency, Amritphale accepted a cardiology fellowship at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, followed by an international fellowship at Oklahoma University before finally moving to Mobile. Now at the USA Health University Hospital, Amritphale keeps himself busy at his cardiac cath lab, his cardiovascular research studies, the Women’s Heart Health program and the pursuit of his MBA. After 10 years of working as a physician, Amritphale saw a gap between the medical and business health administration sectors. That inspired him to go back to school. Being on call every other night, Amritphale chose to pursue his degree over the course of two years. Now in the last year of the program, he is especially grateful for the understanding of professors, who work with him and around his busy schedule. After graduation, Amritphale hopes to bridge the disconnect between healthcare administration and medical execution by contributing a physician's leadership perspective to help hospitals make better business decisions.
