Reimagining Medical School to Increase Access with Dr. David Lenihan

Dr. David Lenihan is the Co-Founder and CEO of TIber Health. He is an experienced educator, innovator, and medical practitioner who has developed new models of medical education focused on expanding pathways for aspiring practitioners traditional medical schools have ignored.

David joins host Mike Palmer in a conversation about his experiences leading Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York City and most recently Ponce Health Sciences University (PHSU) in Puerto Rico. David shares how new predictive models have allowed him to enroll much higher percentages of minority candidates and to admit students who traditional medical schools wouldn’t.

We get his perspectives on leading PHSU through hurricanes, Zika outbreaks, and most recently the Covid-19 pandemic. So much is tied to finding members within the community who can become healthcare leaders who give back and grow trust in these challenging times.

We conclude with David’s takes on new and emerging technology and thoughts on the future of medical education in a deeply insightful conversation that you won’t want to miss.
