These Doctors Mean Business: Med school graduates contributing in non-clinical roles

While patient care is an important part of the careers of the majority of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine graduates, some find that they can make the greatest leadership contributions in non-clinical roles.

“The solid foundation that these graduates have received in the art and science of medicine allows them to function much more effectively and creatively as they take on positions of great responsibility in a variety of fields, some health-related and some not,” said Bonnie Miller, M.D., associate vice chancellor for Health Affairs and senior associate dean for Health Sciences Education.
