Dr. Boris Pasche is taking advantage of his past experience in his role.

New Karmanos Cancer Institute president and CEO Dr. Boris Pasche is less than six months into his tenure, but his clinical background is both easing his transition and paying off for the organization.

Pasche recently joined the HealthLeaders Podcast and spoke about his experience wearing many hats, including physician, researcher, and cancer treatment inventor.

In the following video, Pasche explains how that background has benefited him as a CEO—particularly one in cancer care—by allowing him to tap into a large network of other physicians that he can work alongside or recruit, giving him a strong understanding of the landscape.
