Dr. Bryce Robinson, Associate Professor, Division of Trauma, Burn & Critical Care Surgery, received the American College of Surgeons (ACS)/Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST) Health Policy Scholarship through Brandeis University. This scholarship will support Dr. Robinson to attend the one-week Executive Leadership Program for Health Policy and Management. The program will be held in June 2019 and is offered through The Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University. It is a unique opportunity for attendees to learn more about creating innovative and sustainable solutions to improve the quality, cost-effectiveness, and efficiency of health care service delivery and participating in health care policy and reform.
Dr. Robinson expresses, “I am extremely excited to attend this course offered by the ACS and EAST. Like most surgeons, I feel deeply unprepared to understand and address the complexities of health care reform and system leadership beyond my limited field of medical practice. This scholarship will create a foundation of understanding of healthcare policy and management that will make me a more knowledgeable and effective surgical leader.”
