Meet MSHF Scholarship Recipient Remmington Campbell
Remmington is pursuing an MBA in healthcare management at Western Governors University. He says, “I’ve been very interested in the healthcare field since high school. After spending a few years as a clinical administrator I discovered I have a passion for the business and customer service side of healthcare. I have met so many providers who are excellent healthcare practitioners but who struggle with developing and implementing business strategies and policies. I want to be that little help that moves them from great to extraordinary.”
After completing his program, Remmington plans to shadow his mentor who is a C-suite executive to several hospitals and start his own medical business consulting firm. He wants to apply what he learns to help healthcare providers in Alaska to operate more efficiently so they can keep quality up and costs down for Alaskans, especially among small practices and rural areas.
His best study tip is to first figure out what you ultimately need to understand or do, and then structure your study plan to accomplish that. When Remmington has time oustside of school, he enjoys spending time with his family or practicing martial arts. He also enjoys playing his Okinawan sanshin (three-string banjo) to relax and wind down.
Of his Mat-Su Health Foundation scholarship, Remmington says, “Thanks to the MSHF scholarship, I have been able to do an accelerated masters program and to focus my time on that program almost exclusively, while still having a little time to spend with my family.”
