PROVIDENCE, RI [Brown University] — As a Master’s in Healthcare Leadership (MHL) student, Anthony Napoli, M.D. ’15 MHL experienced firsthand the transformative power of the program. Its influence on him — personally and professionally — inspired Dr. Napoli to stay closely involved with the program, first as an advisor, and then, in 2021 as the Academic Director.
“This program has not only shaped my career, but has also instilled a profound sense of pride for what this program represents,” noted Napoli. “The opportunities it provided me have been instrumental in reaching the point where I am today.”
Now, three years after taking on this leadership role, Dr. Napoli is stepping back from program leadership due to his expanding roles and responsibilities as Vice Chair of Clinical Affairs of Emergency Medicine, a role with clinical oversight of more than half of the Emergency Department visits in Rhode Island. He will continue to serve as an advisor of the program’s capstone course, The Critical Challenge Project (CCP) and as an instructor.
The role of Academic Director will now shift to Scott Rivkees, M.D., Professor of the Practice of Health Services, Policy and Practice at Brown’s School of Public Health.
