Speaker 1: The reality of the world is that medicine is a business and in order to be a leader in that domain I wanted something that wasn't abstract. I wanted something that was, you know, technical and was really gonna push me to develop some new skills.
Speaker 2: Whatever your sector within healthcare, data is the driving force, so it makes sense to be here.
Speaker 3: I've taken Healthcare Data Analytics and that's helped me a lot, working with, I work with data morning to night at my job.
Speaker 2: We were able to use real life data and use a data science analytics platform to analyze big problems.
Speaker 3: I've also taken Healthcare Economics. That was really cool, kind of understanding how different incentive systems can give people different kind of motivations when they deliver care. So I was in the Chicago Booth Healthcare Club and it's other students in healthcare.
Speaker 1: We have people that I met who are working for dialysis clinics after graduation, people going into public policy, healthcare, consulting. There's all kinds of expertise and perspectives.

Speaker 1: The Healthcare Initiative has been excellent for me personally. And I know they're pulling together more and more with respect to health economics, more research into telehealth and these other kind of areas that are really emerging as kind of the next frontier for medicine.
