Designed graphic advertising Career Journey Lessons with Dr. Veraldi

Join us and engage with Kristen L. Veraldi, MD, Ph.D., FCCP, deputy chief of medicine at the Veterans Affairs (VA) Pittsburgh Healthcare System and recent graduate of the Katz Executive MBA in Healthcare.

January 12, 2022, at 6:30 p.m.

It has been long recognized that the practice of medicine comprises both art and science. More recently, it has been acknowledged that understanding the business of medicine is equally important to supporting health and access to healthcare. In 2016, Dr. Veraldi pivoted from her early career as a physician-scientist to pursue a new path in healthcare administration with the Veterans Administration. She credits her Katz Executive MBA in Healthcare experience as foundational to understanding and applying the art and science of business to healthcare operations. 

Dr. Veraldi also serves as faculty for the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and UPMC Division of Pulmonary and Allergy and Critical Care Medicine. Join us for this unique opportunity to meet and hear about her incredible career and educational journey.
