"Recently, I have been asked to assume more administrative responsibilities in areas I had not been trained in; hospital administration was not part of my medical school program.

This has been an incredible learning experience—real information for me to use in my expanding role."

"So rarely do I get an opportunity to be in a learning environment of such caliber and then have an opportunity to directly apply it. This program is giving me an opportunity to make a difference. There are entities out there that are referred to as incubators, a place where a professional can learn and create and act upon new ideas. That is my impression of this experience. Not only will my capstone be helpful to my organization, but I have connected with other professors at Cornell with whom I will be collaborating on other projects. This is an opportunity I would have never had without The Academy!"
