Brian L. David is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Health Policy & Managment of NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. He has been an academic medical center or university administrator for more than 30 years having worked at several institutions throughout the country.  He is currently the Vice Chair for Clinical Integration and Administration at the Samuel Bronfman Department of Medicine of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the Mount Sinai Health System in New York City, a position he’s held since July 2014.  In this role he is responsible for the overall operations of one of the largest departments of medicine in the country.  The Mount Sinai Health System was formed with the merger of Mount Sinai Medical Center and Continuum Health Partners.  An integral part of Mr. David’s responsibilities is to manage the integration of clinical programs and administrative functions of the enlarged Department of Medicine.

Just prior to joining Mount Sinai, Mr. David held a similar position as Vice Chair for Finance & Administration in the Department of Medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons.  Prior to joining Columbia in 2008, he was the Director of Finance & Administration in the Department of Surgery at Stanford University for nearly 10 years (where he also served as interim administrator for the Department of Pediatrics) and the Executive Administrator in the Department of Medicine at the University of Chicago.  His 13 years at Chicago included the Medicine position for two years preceded by several other financial and general management positions including Director of Budget for the Booth Graduate School of Business and as Director of Financial Development for the graduate Division of Physical Sciences.  In joining Surgery at Stanford, Mr. David helped to transform the Department to a top ten NIH funded department of surgery.  At Columbia, Mr. David helped implement a new revenue and expense allocation methodology that had an equally transformative effect on the Department of Medicine. His primary focus at Mount Sinai has been on efforts to redefine the organizational structure and implement common financial goals throughout the merged Department of Medicine. He has been an active participant in faculty recruitment and outreach efforts at all four institutions and has been influential in creating new models of faculty compensation plans and financial funds flows. Mr. David holds an AB and MBA from the University of Chicago.  He is a past officer of the Association of Academic Surgical Administrators (AASA), a past President of the Administrators of Internal Medicine (AIM) and a former member of the Board of the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM).

As part of the core curriculum of the NYU Wagner Masters program, Capstone teams spend an academic year addressing challenges and identifying opportunities for a client organization or conducting research on a pressing social question. Wagner's Capstone program provides students with a centerpiece of their graduate experience whereby they are able to experience first-hand turning the theory of their studies into practice under the guidance of an experienced faculty member. Projects require students to get up-to-speed quickly on a specific content or issue area; enhance key process skills including project management and teamwork; and develop competency in gathering, analyzing, and reporting out on data. Capstone requires students to interweave their learning in all these areas, and to do so in real time, in an unpredictable, complex, real-world environment.
