As an MD/MBA candidate at Harvard University, Rotenstein is able to develop clinical skills alongside business skills that she feels will help her better advocate for her patients.
Says Rotenstein, “I wanted to have the skill set to sit at the boardroom table and advocate for my patients’ interests in the language that shapes so much of decision-making in America.” She foresees a career where she works at the intersection of clinical medicine, management and research, working to improve the value of care for patients and physicians alike.
Rotenstein says her studies and work at Harvard have been most rewarding when she’s exchanging ideas between peers and professors alike. She has also enjoyed the diversity of people and challenges she has encountered during her studies, saying that she enjoys “meeting amazing people along the way – people who inspire you, challenge you, and provide you with new perspectives.”
When she’s not working, Lisa enjoys indoor cycling, dancing, traveling and spending time with her friends, family, partner and two cats.
