Through innovative educational programs on the business of medicine, leadership and diversity, Dr. Mason’s personal mission is to teach, facilitate and empower future and current physicians to reach their maximum potential as comprehensively-prepared medical professionals.
The past 20 years as a clinician and educator have enabled her to develop expertise in medical education program innovation and implementation from the physician’s perspective.
Dr. Mason is an alumnus of the Kellogg School of Management, holds adjunct professorships in GME at the University of Louisville School of Medicine and Orthopedics and Rehabilitation at the University of Texas, Medical Branch in Galveston. She has held committee and board positions on various AAOS groups such as the leadership Fellows Committee and the Ruth Jackson Orthopedic Society.
Previously a practicing, board certified orthopedic surgeon and physician administrator of a private practice, Dr. Mason was forced into early retirement due to rheumatoid arthritis. She now leverages her years of clinical and administrative experience to help doctors build careers, first, matching more than 100 women and underrepresented minorities with orthopedic residency programs through her non-profit, Nth Dimensions, and now through Beyond The Exam Room teaching doctors, residents and students the skills they need to live the best possible lives in a rapidly changing medical landscape.
Dr. Mason is also a proud wife and the mother of two future leaders.
