About me: Sarah is a doctor specialising in endocrinology and diabetes. She completed her medical studies at Monash University in Australia and is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. She has worked as a clinician across four major teaching hospitals in Melbourne, Australia and since 2019 has been a senior fellow at University College London hospital in London. Sarah has worked extensively in managing chronic illness across the lifespan and is an advocate for under-represented groups including young adults, patients from a non-English speaking background, and transgender patients. She believes in working collaboratively with patients and taking a holistic approach to achieve healthcare goals.

Sarah is undertaking the MBA because she wants to improve healthcare education and access and sees the combination of clinical experience and business acumen as a powerful tool to affect real-world change. She is committed to exploring solutions in healthtech and sustainable investment to rethink service delivery and bridge the gap between increasing demand and ever-limited resources. In the context of the pandemic, this feels particularly relevant and urgent. Sarah chose LBS for her MBA due to its ethos of diversity, excellence and thought leadership. She is supported on her journey by the generous gift of the MSc12 Service and Society Scholarship.

Sarah loves living in London (despite the cold Januarys!) and outside of the MBA she is an avid hiker, runner and art enthusiast.

Three topics I can be approached about: Applying to LBS from a non-traditional background; MBA and healthcare; studying with a partner; moving to London to study
