Scott Grant '18

Merck & Co.

Engineering Specialist

Scott is a part of the Leadership Development Program at Merck & Co. allowing him to work within the Manufacturing Department to identify areas that hinder the systems from bringing life-saving medicines to patients worldwide.

“Joining the HSE program allowed me to develop the skills that engineers use to analyze and ultimately influence the decisions that push these organizations forward. I was fortunate to take advantage of resources in professional development such classes on Process Simulation, Lean Six Sigma Training, and the IISE professional conferences. But what I enjoyed the most, was the personalized attention that I received from the program staff. Professor Ana, Linda and Dr. Theman, in particular, were a constant source support and council for gaining the most out of what Graduate School had to offer.”

"I use engineering tools to make high-level strategic recommendations and work on projects that improve patient access, satisfaction, and flow. I have seen many complex issues and inefficiencies inherent in hospitals, but I have also seen the value engineering brings to each project."

"Engineering in healthcare is a growing field with many opportunities. Done right, it has the potential to form a seamless and sustainable Healthcare System that produces timely, high-quality care at an affordable price."


Dr. David Adinaro, MD, FACEP  '15

CMIO, St. Joseph's Healthcare System

"I realized that if I wanted to grow beyond my comfort zone, [which was in] clinical medicine, I needed to go back to school. For me, that was getting a master's [degree] in healthcare systems engineering from Lehigh University. It led directly to my first hospital-level position as a chief medical informatics officer, which led to considerable growth and opportunity."

M. Kris Srinivasan '12Kris's pictture


AlphaMD US

Being one of the first graduates of the Lehigh HSE Program was quite the experience and a career-changing move for me. As a former clinician who was looking to learn how to formally apply his clinical knowledge to process improvement, I was introduced to a new master’s degree program at Lehigh University called Healthcare Systems Engineering. In theory, it made sense and seemed like it would help me make my next career move. As I went through the program and realized the rigor and depth in which we would be learning the systems engineering concepts, I quickly realized that my initial thoughts of simply taking my clinical knowledge and applying some things I learned in the program would be just scratching the surface.
