Dr. Costanzo “Zino” Di Perna is a successful thoracic surgeon, Medical Director for the Dignity Health Cancer Institute of Greater Sacramento, and a physician with Mercy Medical Group Inc. He handles about 500 cases a year and oversees a large practice.
So why did he decide to enroll in the Berkeley MBA for Executives program?
In the first installment of two-part series, Zino talks first about why—in the rapidly changing healthcare system—he feels a business degree is critical to his own professional success.
In Part 2, he discusses why it may be important for more MDs to add MBA diplomas to their office walls.
