I continue to serve patients at the bedside, despite not being in hospitals all the time.

My Path to McKinsey

I joined McKinsey’s Healthcare Systems and Services practice roughly two years ago, after working in hospitals for some time. I am a physician and public health specialist by training.

Choosing McKinsey

I reached a turning point in my medical career when I helped coordinate and contain an infection breakout. I realized that I wanted to reach more than one patient at a time. I wanted to try to help more people in one go. McKinsey seemed like a place where I could do that.

Work Environment

I expected that working at McKinsey would be similar to any other job I have had. McKinsey is more of a culture than a job; it has its own language and customs. There is a real sense of ownership and camaraderie when you are part of a practice.

Rewarding and Meaningful Experiences

I was really missing working in a hospital when I began a hospital transformation study. We were interviewing staff across several departments – one of which was a pediatric intensive care unit. We had a chat with the nurses in the unit. They introduced us to a 7-year-old boy who had spent his entire life in the unit. My interactions with this boy helped me realize that I continue to serve patients at the bedside, despite not being in hospitals all the time.
