Meet Dr. Anthony B. Coleman, DHA Class of 2018

Current Position:

President/CEO of Broadlawns Medical Center

Why did you decide to earn your DHA?

I decided to earn my DHA to understand the political determinants of health and enhance my ability to effect change via legislation.

How has earning your DHA helped your career?

Earning my DHA has helped my career in many ways. It has given me a granular view of the inner-workings of health care management and operations. It has also afforded me the opportunity to understand health care from the macro and micro perspectives and how the two are related.

What was the most valuable part of the DHA program?

My cohort. The mix of professionals from different areas of healthcare and at different junctions in their career provided for rich discussions, diversity of thought and a broadened perspective of how health care functions in this country.

What advice would you give to someone considering the MUSC DHA program?

Determine your dissertation topic as early as you can. Use each class and class assignment to build your dissertation.
