50 Most Influential Clinical Executives
Dr. Robert Grossman
NYU Langone Health
Grossman made headlines last August when he announced that the NYU School of Medicine will become tuition-free. Grossman and other school leaders called it a "moral imperative" considering the impact medical school debt has on physician stress levels, diversity in the profession and the provider shortage. He’s also led an effort to revamp medical education, ensuring that students are immersed in clinical training from the beginning of medical school. At the hospital level, Grossman has driven improvements that resulted in a $7 billion spike in revenue and $2.7 billion rise in philanthropy. NYU Langone is among a small cadre of hospitals to earn a five-star rating for safety, quality, and patient experience from the CMS.
