Jay S. Feldstein, DO ’81, president and CEO, was recently invited to join Philadelphia Business Journal Leadership Trust, an exclusive community for influential business leaders, executives and entrepreneurs in Greater Philadelphia.
Dr. Feldstein was chosen by the Selection Committee due to his experience, leadership and influence in the local business landscape and beyond.
Since taking the helm of PCOM in July 2014, Dr. Feldstein has overseen significant growth at the College, both in capital projects and expansion of academic offerings. Most notably, in August of 2019 the College’s newest location, PCOM South Georgia in Moultrie, Georgia, opened its doors as the first medical school in that region.
Additionally, under Dr. Feldstein’s leadership the College has placed a renewed focus on recruiting more underrepresented minorities through partnerships with local high schools and colleges such as Aspira Schools of PA, Inc.; Esperanza College and Cabrini University.
And, in 2016 the College launched the Primary Care Innovation Fund, focused on fueling entrepreneurship and growing the College’s endowment by investing in healthcare-related products and services in the primary care fields.
