Dr. Jeffrey Fetter, Chief Medical Officer, New Hampshire State Hospital
Today’s guest is Dr. Jeffrey Fetter, the Chief Medical Officer for the New Hampshire State Hospital. Dr. Fetter is a board-certified physician in both internal medicine and psychiatry, and has spent his career caring for some of the most vulnerable patients in New Hampshire. The New Hampshire State Hospital is a secure, inpatient psychiatric hospital for patients with serious mental illness. In this podcast we talk about Dr. Fetter’s journey through medicine, including how he was sure the one specialty he would not do was psychiatry, to his previous roles as the chief medical officer for a community mental health clinic and chief medical officer for the New Hampshire state prison system. This is a great conversation about the practice of medicine, but also about the importance of physician leadership.

Jason Dupuis, Chief Patient Experience Officer, PM Pediatrics Health
Today’s guest is Jason Dupuis, the Chief Patient Experience Officer for PM Pediatrics Health. In this podcast we talk about his early career at Boston Children’s where he rose to the director of the Emergency Department before he was thirty, and then how he got a job with PM Pediatrics when it was an emerging pediatrics urgent care chain because he had written his master’s thesis on the need for pediatrics urgent care in Massachusetts. When the founders heard what he had written, they told him to write his own job description. I had a lot of fun with this interview because Jason is also an alumni of my department’s undergraduate program and I’ve known him for several years, though I had never had the chance to hear his whole story.

You’ll hear me say, “wow!” a lot in this interview because Dr. Hudenko’s research and entrepreneurial efforts, especially now with his role at K-Health, seem to promise real improvements in cost, access, and quality for healthcare.

Major General David Rubenstein, FACHE, US Army, Retired
In this podcast I had the honor of interviewing Major General (retired) David Rubenstein. Among the many duties of his career, General Rubenstein was the commander of the Army Medical Department Center and School, which was the unit where I was an instructor before I retired from the Army, and he was also the chief of the Medical Service Corps, the Army branch that I served in for 23 years. Although I did not work directly with him on active duty, I can say that General Rubenstein was one of the most respected Medical Department generals I knew of during my career. While I only saw him at a distance while we were on active duty, over the last several years I have had the opportunity to get to know him post-retirement through our mutual interest in health administration education, and we had corresponded regularly about my RWL newsletter, so it was a real pleasure to get to interview him about his remarkable career.
