President and Chief Executive Officer

"Developing the next generation of physician leaders within Humana is more important than ever as we aim to redefine healthcare. As we deepen our clinical capabilities and work to simplify and integrate the healthcare experience, it’s essential that our efforts are grounded in the perspective and expertise of physicians. In fact, infusing clinical expertise in our organization has been a game-changer in moving the organization from an insurance mindset to one centered around health."

"We respect the high level of trust between doctors and nurses, and the people they care for. How can we support these relationships by simplifying the basics, such as referrals and prescriptions? And facilitate the more challenging conversations around behavioral health, chronic conditions, food insecurity and loneliness? We believe the best way to get these answers is to go directly to doctors and nurses, just as we’ve been going directly to consumers."

Segment President, Healthcare Services

"Advancing healthcare is a lifetime's worth of work! It's not for those who want to take the easy way. It's not selling people a consumer product. It's giving people something they want and (at times) they don't even know they need. Our innovative physician rotational program develops that next generation of clinical operators who will make the difference between a good day and a bad day for someone's health, their family and the quality of their life."

Chief Medical Officer

We're excited to have you come and learn more about the work we're doing to improve people's health by making the healthcare system less fragmented and more integrated. Humana is a rapidly changing company that is a leader in both population health and in the conversion from a "traditional' insurer to a true "integrated health delivery company."

We're hoping you'll join us as a member of our innovative program designed to bring physician leaders to Humana. Our rotational program will utilize the leadership skills you've already developed, immersing you in key areas within our company with intense executive mentorship and structured learning. Our goal is to foster the development of the next generation of physician leaders within Humana.

Executive Physician Immersion Program: Goals

Humana Chief Medical Officer Roy Beveridge, M.D., discusses the goals of the Executive Physician Immersion Program.

One of the things that we're trying to accomplish with this program is to develop business leaders, people who are going to run large segments in the payer world. And the payer world is transforming itself very quickly, as is Humana. Humana is moving from a payer world into a population health to a care delivery system. And if in this transition we are increasingly responsible for patients, members, we have to have a group of people who are managing the business and doing that really effectively but at the same time have all the clinical intuition and clinical expertise that is needed to make these appropriate and correct decisions for populations.

Executive Physician Immersion Program: Our hope for participants

Humana Chief Medical Officer Roy Beveridge, M.D., discusses his hopes for Executive Physician Immersion Program participants.

What I hope in this experience is that one takes the clinical skills one has with the background of a secondary degree and builds upon this with a 2-year experience that allows them to participate in the payer world in ways that people haven't traditionally done so, but will allow them to advance rapidly through large, complex organizations. The investment is large and the expectation in terms of where these folks will go and what they are going to do is similarly high. And that's what we're expecting of each and every one who goes through this program. That they're transformed from being clinicians who have other experiences to folks who have all of that but understand the business of insurance, the business of healthcare and will lead companies like Humana in this transformation that we're experiencing in the United States.

Executive Physician Immersion Program: Are you a good candidate?

Humana Chief Medical Officer Roy Beveridge, M.D., discusses the qualifications Humana looks for in Executive Physician Immersion Program candidates.

The candidate that we're looking for will be someone who is earlier in their career, someone who is interested in working in the payer space. We believe that a secondary degree will allow them to have the expertise to work not just on the business side but to bring all of their clinical expertise into the decision making that will be required in this ever-increasingly complicated business world.
