Here’s What Ophthalmologist-MBAs Are Up To

Posted on

Most ophthalmologists with MBAs appear to maintain clinical responsibilities, though a number hold nonclinical positions, according to a cross-sectional study involving 120 ophthalmologists who hold such degrees.

Investigators collected demographic, training, and professional activity data from each ophthalmologist’s online profiles. Among the results:   Nearly 3 in every 10 serve in primarily nonclinical roles.  >Half participate in significant nonclinical activity. 3 in every 10 are in hospital administration. 7% serve in pharmaceutical administration.  5% are consultants.  Older clinicians are more likely to participate in significant nonclinical activity.  43% are employed by academic medical centers. 30% work for large group practices, and 13% are in private practice.
