UVAFinance has a new doctor in the house

Devin Foster, DHA, MA
 Devin Foster, budget analyst in the Office of Financial Planning & Analysis, earned his Doctor of Healthcare Administration from the Virginia University of Lynchburg this August.  He is a part of the first cohort to graduate from their DHA program.

Foster's internship was completed at UVA Medical Center under Chief Operating Officer Jody Reyes and staff. 

"I have always wanted to go to and graduate from a Historically Black College & University like VUL, and their newly-created program for working professionals provided that opportunity," Foster says.

He credits Dean Rex Hammond and Dr. Atul Gupta for convincing him to enroll, and extends his thanks to UVAHR for connecting him with UVA Health.

"UVA Medical Center is the number one hospital in Virginia, so it was an honor to shadow leadership and gain valuable knowledge," he says.

What's next for this newly-minted doctor?  Foster says, "We'll see what the future holds for me as I build lasting friendships and connections on this rewarding journey."
