FROM Jones(Rice) Admissions Blog: Advice from EMBA Alumna on Taking on "Job #5"
Image
Dr. Anita Ying
Rice MBA for Executives Class of 2013
Assistant Professor, Dept of Endocrine Neoplasia
and Division of Internal Medicine
Assistant Professor, Division of Pediatrics
Clinical Medical Director, Endocrine Center
U.T. MD Anderson Cancer Center
I received my medical degree at Duke University and then completed my internship and residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Duke. Then, I was asked to stay as Chief Resident in Pediatrics for a year, which is an administrative, educational, and clinical role where you manage 66 residents and supervise resident care of patients. This was during a significant change in graduate medical education when the 80 hour work week rules were started, so I was able to shape a lot of the implementation at the institutional level. I then returned to Houston to pursue a fellowship in Adult and Pediatric Endocrinology at Baylor College of Medicine and UT MD Anderson. Four board certifications later, I began my career at MD Anderson. I spend about 60% of my time seeing patients in the clinic or in the hospital. I focus on caring for adults and children with endocrine tumors or endocrine diseases as a result of their other tumors. The remainder of my time is spent focused on quality improvement initiatives in my own department and across the institution. I serve on various committees that focus on measuring and improving the quality of care we provide and improving the customer experience for patients and referring physicians.

Throughout my training, I knew that I wanted to have an impact on healthcare delivery at the system level, not just to the individual patient that entrusted me with their care. In order to eventually take on such a position, I felt a responsibility to ensure I had the appropriate skill set to be a leader in the healthcare industry. It is an unusual career path for a physician in academic medicine, so I had to create a path for myself and not be shy seeking out mentors. I was fortunate to have the support of not only my mentors and supervisors, but also my colleagues in pursuing an MBA.

 As I look back on my Rice MBA for Executives experience, the best part of my journey has been the time spent with my fellow classmates. I have made some lifelong friends and connections across so many industries. I have learned a lot about myself as a team member, leader, and have had the privilege to work on teams with some very smart, dedicated folks. And, I finally can have an educated conversation about the financial markets and the energy sector.

My one piece of advice to prospective students? Get organized! As my kids will tell you, I have four jobs – Mom, wife, doctor, and medical administrator, so adding a fifth job of EMBA student required upfront planning and support in all my other jobs. I felt no guilt in outsourcing tasks, while at the same time making sure I was present for events important to my family. I had discussions with my personal and professional “bosses” well ahead of time that this was what I wanted to do and why I wanted it, and thus had their 100% support. Many people negotiate for financial support for the Executive MBA, but negotiating for time was my priority. There is so much you can learn during those two years if you give yourself the time to do it. Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

Hi

can anyone please elaborate on the process of GPA conversion to 4.0 point scale. Is it mandatory? The application instruction says evaluation recommended, what exactly is the evaluation? How much does it cost?
I am Indian applicant and did my engineering from NIT Kurkshetra. Can`t I get waiver for this conversion.
Please help, need to put application in the second round.

The following is the email I got from adcom:

"
The conversion of your GPA is not required but strongly recommended. The WES GPA conversion tool is not applicable to all institutions. It is because of this that we recommend having your documents evaluated by a third party evaluator.

You are welcome to submit your documents as is without and evaluation or GPA conversion. Please note that if the Admissions Committee has any doubt regarding your degree equivalency or GPA, you will be required to have a credential evaluation completed for admissions consideration.

If I can be of further assistance to you, please feel free to contact me.

Best Regards,
Paige

"

Hope this will help you.

Hope this will help you.



On the other hand, Katie me to convert to a 4.0 scale using WES. Here's her reply:

"Please proceed with using the WES method of converting your GPA. This is the preferred method, and if we have any questions or need any clarification, we will be sure to get in touch with you. It is interesting that someone posted on the GMAT Club page that they were asked to submit their GPA without converting. I can guarantee that this instruction did not come from the Admissions Office."

Hi!
I'm also an international applicant who applied in round 2.
My interview was today. It was fairly conversational and the interviewer did not ask any 'out of the box' questions. Below are some examples.

Explain your background/Walk through your resume.
Describe a situation where you had to persuade someone.
Give an example of your team leadership.
Tell me about a leader you have worked with and what you admired about that person.

Yeah, when I had my round 1 it was a second year student.

There were some good tips in earlier posts on this forum, but i will try and summarize:
1)Make sure that the message you conveyed in your application is clearly reiterated during the interview.
2)Be yourself and make sure that you really know why you need an MBA, why right now is the best time, and most importantly Why Rice.
3)I didn't (and haven't heard of anyone) have an interviewer ask any really oddball questions, and they really are trying to get the know the person behind the application.
4) Be ready to ask questions. I got some great candid feedback from my interviewer.

I am also local to the Houston area, so if you have any questions about H-town feel free to ask.
