At BCG, Innovators view the world from unexpected angles. They bring creativity and a fresh perspective to every challenge they face. Adina challenges the status quo.
Right from the start I was able to interact with top-level management at hospitals and other organizations—and work together with them on their most critical issues.
My background is as a doctor and researcher. Throughout medical school, and even more so during my years as a practicing physician, I was increasingly intrigued by the macro perspective of health care. The desire to be part of shaping and driving change in health care systems ultimately led me to BCG.
During my first years at BCG, I worked across a broad range of health care topics and with various players, such as with public and private care providers, medtech companies, and companies in the pharmaceutical sector. I have also had great experiences and learned a lot from cases outside of health care, which has helped build my skills. Throughout the past three years I have been able to travel the globe, work with inspiring colleagues and clients, and truly experience being part of making change happen—just what I have always wanted to do.
Adina holds an MD as well as a PhD in clinical epidemiology from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. She has prior work experience as a physician at the Karolinska University Hospital, as well as a board member in the Swedish Medical Association.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I really like the variability and the steep learning curve. No one day looks like another, and in each new project I have the opportunity to learn new things—from clients, from seniors, and from peers on the team.
Q: What international experiences at BCG have been the most interesting for you?
A: I spent five months working with ICHOM—the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement, in Boston. This was a great experience, in which, as project manager for a group of specialists across the globe, I was part of the development of a standard set of outcomes for measurement in one specific disease.
Q: How has BCG helped you grow and succeed?
A: BCG has given me the opportunity to learn new things at a speed that I did not think was possible. I have learned about businesses and specific areas of knowledge, but also about how to best present information and communicate and how to lead teams. This has been tremendously valuable and is something I will always carry with me no matter what tasks I have at hand.
