Dr. Michael Collins: Chancellor, UMass Medical School, Worcester


Dr. Michael Collins is overseeing an expanding UMass Medical School at a time when the role of government in the health-care industry is a hot issue. As head of UMass Medical School since 2008, Collins is positioned to provide critical direction and leadership for its continuing efforts to distinguish itself as a premier academic health-sciences center of national and international distinction. The economic impact of his institution is huge.

UMass Medical School generates more than $900 million in annual revenue. It consists of the following: the School of Medicine; the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences; the Graduate School of Nursing; more than 1,100 graduate-level students; a workforce of 6,800, several complex and diversified business units such as Commonwealth Medicine and MassBiologics of UMMS; and a thriving, $250-million research portfolio.

In a 2012 Worcester Business Journal interview, Collins said, "When you have a large number of people to lead, you have to rely on a lot of people by establishing a vision, articulating it, and [being] sure they understand it with you."

America is only now beginning to fix its massively broken health-care system. Look for Collins to continue wielding his power-and-influence scalpel to apply more than just a Band-Aid to that gaping wound.
