MD/MBA Candidate, 2016
Omar Z. Maniya, MD/MBA Candidate
Originally from Princeton Junction, NJ, Omar Z. Maniya is currently an MD/MBA Candidate at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. During his undergraduate years at Georgetown, Omar studied biology and economics and gained experience at the intersection of medicine, business, and policy in Healthcare Investment Banking at RBC Capital Markets, at the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, and in the Advocacy office of the American Medical Association.

Omar was one of only two first year medical students to receive the prestigious AMA Foundation Excellence in Medicine Leadership Award for his work with Primary Care Progress to advocate and successfully lobby for the bipartisan introduction of the "Family Healthcare Accessibility Act," a bill that reforms malpractice for volunteer physicians at community health centers, to both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate. Omar currently serves as an ambassador for the philanthropic arm of the AMA, and holds a variety of leaderships within the AMA's medical student's section. At Georgetown, Omar founded the Business of Medicine group to serve as a platform for medical students to discuss nonclinical issues that effect physicians, before founding the MD MBA Association to serve as a professional network and resource for MD/MBAs.

In the future, Omar hopes to combine his interests in business and medicine to develop novel healthcare delivery models that can provide more accessible and higher quality care at a sustainable cost.

Omar writes The Do No Harm column, which takes a look at common sense solutions to the problems our healthcare system faces from the perspective of an MD/MBA Candidate. Read Omar Z. Maniya's Articles for MDMBAs.com
