Humana is recruiting physicians for the company’s Executive Physician Immersion Program.
The two-year program, led by the office of the chief medical officer, can help physicians develop their capabilities in key business areas, including strategy, governance, population-health improvement, consumer-centered design, financial structures, value-based care, data analytics and government relations, among others.
Participants receive senior executive mentoring and attain a comprehensive, detailed understanding of Humana. They learn about systems affecting population health at a national level, while having the option to practice medicine and care for individuals. The result is a set of high-demand leadership skills that merge clinical insights with key business capabilities.
“The Executive Physician Immersion Program at Humana allows a business-orientated physician to cultivate the necessary skills to run large organizations and impact the future of healthcare,” said Amal Agarwal, DO, MBA and a participant in the program. “Frequent collaboration across internal departments with regular exposure to external stakeholders (physicians, hospitals, patients, pharma), coupled with executive mentorship has, in one year, given me an expertise of the complexities of healthcare.”
The ideal candidate
• Is board-certified or board-eligible
• Is business-oriented
• Possesses a secondary degree – MBA or JD preferred, MPH considered
• Has enthusiasm for creative and challenging projects
• Thrives in a team-based environment
“We’re excited to have you come and learn more about the work we’re doing to improve health by making the health care system less fragmented and more integrated,” said Dr. Roy Beveridge, Humana’s Chief Medical Officer. “Humana is a rapidly evolving company that is a leader in both population health and in the conversion from a traditional insurer to a truly integrated health delivery company. We hope you’ll join us as a member of our innovative program designed to bring physician leaders to Humana. Our program will utilize the leadership skills you’ve already developed, immersing you in key areas within our company with intense executive mentorship and structured learning. Our goal is to foster the development of the next generation of physician leaders within Humana.”
