Dermatology Manager to Lead National Medical Administrators Group


Matheny named chair-elect of medical research and education assembly

Few executives are more involved in improving management for academic medicine than Pamela Matheny. During her 11-year career at the University of Missouri School of Medicine, the administrator and senior practice manager for the Department of Dermatology has been a member of numerous national organizations. Now, she assumes a leadership role with the Medical Group Management Association-American College of Medical Practice Executives (MGMA-ACMPE), a group of medical practice administrators that represents more than 40 percent of health care services delivered in the United States.

Matheny is chair-elect for the association's Academic Practice Assembly (APA), a subset of medical managers who support group practice and institutional administration, community service, internal and external research activities and medical education. She will serve three years in leadership roles with the APA group, rotating through the positions of chair-elect, chair and past chair.

"Pam joined our leadership team as a champion for education," said Vickie Firkins, APA chair and an administrator with Indiana University Health. "Her enthusiasm, love of learning, and ability to relate to the needs of our members will lead APA to future improvements in academic health management."

Matheny earned her master's degree in industrial and organizational psychology and is working toward a doctorate in the same field. She has served MU's Department of Dermatology since 2001 and has held leadership roles with other national organizations. She is currently president-elect of the Association of Dermatology Administrators and Managers and has served on its board of directors since 2003. She has also been a steering committee member, program committee chair and annual meeting coordinator for the Dermatology Academic Administrators Group.

MGMA-ACMPE serves 22,500 members who lead 13,600 organizations nationwide in which some 280,000 physicians provide more than 40 percent of the health care services delivered in the U.S.
