Let’s Connect: SFHEF Spotlight

A few years ago, upon starting my Healthcare MBA at FIU, I had the pleasure of learning about the South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum (SFHEF) and the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). Through SFHEF’s educational and networking events, I was able to gain the knowledge necessary to both compete and excel in South Florida’s unique healthcare landscape.

Attending meetings and becoming a student advocate for the organization helped me create relationships that otherwise I would not have been able to attain. Furthermore the mentorship I received from the members of the forum, helped pave the road for my future endeavors.
Although my background includes the clinical side of healthcare, there was always the business and management portion that was lacking. The educational events often brought topics such as healthcare transformation, the impact of the ACA, population health as well as many others. These events, which are presented by experts in their fields, create an incredible opportunity for those who are interested in furthering their education and keeping relevant in the work place.
Currently, I am blessed to be working in the healthcare investment field with Flagler Investment Property Group. Flagler Investment is a full service healthcare, technology and private equity group. My primary responsibilities at Flagler Investment are working with growing healthcare groups as well as creating new opportunities for both providers and the patients they work with.
Now as a healthcare executive in South Florida, I have the privilege of sitting on the board of directors for SFHEF and sharing my experience and healthcare knowledge with others. Some of my goals this year are to engage the student healthcare executive population and encourage our members to make themselves available for mentorship. I look forward to seeing all of you at one of our next events and encourage readers to reach out to me for any questions or advice.
Until next time, I’m Dr. Eli Karlin … let’s connect!
