Learn more about this important work by visiting Allen Curreri's ResearchGate profile.
Allen Curreri is a driven and passionate professional in the healthcare industry who has devoted his current MBA research to the inclusion (or lack thereof) of mindfulness training for physicians. Allen became interested in clinical decision-making after spending much of his professional life inside ERs and hospitals, as he has been active in medical sales (and later, pharmaceutical sales) for 10+ years.
While working with doctors early in his career, Allen was concerned to realize how little training and resources were available to doctors to ensure thoughtful, critical decision making on behalf of patients. This concern stayed with Allen over the years, until he decided to dedicate his career to the problem and embarked on his research of clinical decision making — the first research of its kind. He is using the data that he and his colleagues collected to design a curriculum that will standardize medical decision making and introduce a culture of mindfulness to the high-pressure, high-stakes world of treatment and diagnosis.
Allen Curreri has extensive experience in the medical field and his varied career has given him a unique perspective. Allen has witnessed the hard work and impossible decisions that doctors are faced with from many different angles within the medical industry.
Currently, Allen is the Vice President of National and International Sales at Letco Medical. Prior to this he worked at Prestige Medical Solutions Limited, where he rose to become Chief Operations Officer before moving on to Letco. Allen got his start on the ground floor selling scanning equipment in emergency departments.
Allen Curreri is also currently in the middle of launching a nonprofit organization focused on making school more financially feasible for people who cannot get federal loan funding. Too many bright, promising children are finding their futures severely limited because of a one-time drug offense in their pasts. Allen's nonprofit efforts are designed to give kids like that a second chance.
While they would usually be denied federal funding, the organization aims to provide them with the means to lift themselves up and change the direction of their lives by turning their dreams of higher education into a reality. Allen Curreri believes that all kids with the drive and the passion to pursue an education deserve the chance to see how far their talent and hard work can take them.
