CSR is excited to welcome Dr. Baran Erdik to the team as a Medical Operations Consultant. Dr. Erdik is an M.D. with further specialization in Internal Medicine/Cardiology and helps CSR on a wide range of issues: mergers and acquisitions, policy compliance, and savings and efficiency, among others.
True to the CSR value of versatility, what he enjoys most in his work is the need to constantly adapt to challenges and changes.
Dr. Erdik is originally from Istanbul, Turkey, and then traveled the world, working as a physician in New Zealand, Germany and Washington State. He is fluent in Turkish, German and English. After earning his Master’s in Healthcare Administration and Policy from Washington State University, graduating summa cum laude, he decided to make a turn in his career. His master’s degree opened him to a different aspect of the healthcare industry which highly piqued his interest. He found his new passion in consulting for hospitals and medical practices, where he could leverage his physician experience – understanding the needs of the clinicians – as well as his studies in healthcare administration. He has also done research on evidence based medicine, focused on how big data can be used in medicine and consulting. Click here for a list of citations/publications.
When he’s not working, you can find Baran dining out around the city or biking.
