A Gift from Our Physician Alumni

In the Kelley Physician MBA, physicians understand the value of learning from others, and they pay it forward. This lecture series was created through a generous gift from the Class of 2016, in which each member donated funds to endow it. In addition to providing current students access to high-profile healthcare leaders, the lecture series is an opportunity for alumni to return to Indianapolis and participate in thought-provoking discussions throughout their careers.
