Baran Erdik, MD, MHPA

Dr. Baran Erdik is an M.D. with further specialization in Internal Medicine/Cardiology. He traveled the world, working as a physician in New Zealand, Germany and Washington State. 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 the door for 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 now settled down in Atlanta, consulting for healthcare facilities, and helps CSR on a wide range of issues: mergers and acquisitions, policy compliance, and savings and efficiency, among others. What he enjoys most in his work is the need to constantly adapt to challenges and changes. It makes every day different and worth going to work for. He has also done research on evidence-based medicine, focused on how big data can be used in medicine and consulting.
