François Sainfort, Ph.D., FACHE, has always had an interest in healthcare and hoped to follow his older brother into medical school. But as a student in France, he was encouraged to pursue other opportunities.
“When it was time for me to decide what to do after high school, I wanted to go to medical school, but in France, if you were good in math, they sent you into engineering,” Dr. Sainfort explained. “I went obediently, but I very quickly found a way to get into healthcare by doing systems engineering to try to improve complex health systems.”
