Physician's Perspective Aids Management Program
Having a physician run a master’s-level management program may seem unusual. Dr. Forney Fleming considers it a distinct advantage.“Someone who has been in any of the professional fields they’re dealing with brings life experiences to that particular arena,” he said. “That is not the typical approach that most programs take.” Fleming, who heads up the Healthcare Management master’s program at UT Dallas, came to the University after decades of working as an orthopedic surgeon. Add an MBA and teaching experience to the equation, and it becomes clear that Fleming’s credentials are unparalleled. “This was my idea for retirement—to have a second career in teaching,” he said. “My mother, who was a teacher, was an inspiration to me. I prepared for it by getting an MBA a few years ago with the specific career desire to teach. During my practice career, I was involved in a lot of teaching—I taught residents, I gave lectures, I was program director of an EMT training course—and I enjoyed the classroom environment.”
A Healthy Outlook at the New Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management
Fast-growing, appealing to diverse audiences and yet united in their efforts to make UT Dallas a thought leader in their discipline, the healthcare management programs at the Naveen Jindal School of Management have banded together to create a new Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management, which formally debuted April 20.

“The center is intended to bring all of the faculty together, reach out to many of you that are in industry and invite you to speak and lecture and be part of this great effort,” Dr. Britt Berrett, center director, told an audience of healthcare professionals, students and professors gathered at JSOM to mark the occasion with a brief program and reception.
