Improve Health Care Delivery

At an early age, Olu Akinrimisi witnessed firsthand the vital need for accessible health care. Now he is pursuing an MS in Health Care Management degree to build and implement affordable health care business solutions.


OLU AKINRIMISI: I grew up in Long Beach, California. There are a lot of issues with access to health care or health insurance rather, and a lot of people would deter from seeking health care simply because of the cost. My brother, he had asthma. It was hard for us to really seek care for him.

As the eldest, I felt like this is my opportunity. My parents came to this country for a reason for their children to excel and use the fruits that are within this country to build us up. So I'm trying to do as much as I can not only to give back and help my family, but also the community that I come from.

So I go to UC San Diego School of Medicine, and I'm in a five-year dual degree program. So we'll graduate with both an MD and a master's of our choice. Between our third and our fourth, you have the option to go to whatever master's program you want to go to study. And I specifically chose to come to Carey Business School to get a health management because they highlighted the business within medicine, which I think is important.

But they also put emphasis on humanities within medicine, keeping humanities in mind. And I think that is key in practicing being a clinical practitioner. I plan to do my residency training in internal medicine and then from there potentially specializing in gastroenterology.

With my degree from Carey, along with my medical degree, something I plan on doing is to really use my background and health disparities, my passion for bridging that gap and using this tool of business to create its own community clinic. Carey has really helped me become a good health advocate. And with that, I know I can go back into the medical field and create strategies that are able to tend to the needs of the community.
