How to Overcome Adversity and Find Success in a Nontraditional Career
Listen now
Dr. Anjani Mahabashya completed her medical training in India, then emigrated to the U.S. After participating in several elective experiences, she entered the McLaren Flint Internal Medicine Residency Program in Flint, Michigan. She then began her career as a hospitalist. Her career was suddenly interrupted as the result of a disabling injury in 2020. This jeopardized her long-term plans and she had to develop a radical new career trajectory. She obtained additional health care management training at the Yale School of Management and became certified by the American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians (ABQAURP). During our conversation, Anjani describes how she overcame the challenges she faced, why she likes working as a hospital-based utilization management physician advisor, and the one step that made all the difference in her successful transition.
