ISU College of Business hires EIRMC CEO as
executive in residence
The Idaho State University College of Business has brought in its first executive in residence, Doug Crabtree, to the health care administration programs.
Crabtree recently retired from Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center where he was CEO for 18 years. As the program’s executive in residence, Crabtree will take the role as instructor in both graduate- and undergraduate-level health care administration and master of health care administration programs, a university news release said.
In this role, Crabtree will also use his extensive background working in the health care administration field to provide academic program directors and the College of Business dean with advice in the initial launch of the master of health care administration program.
“Mr. Crabtree’s direct mentoring of students — helping them develop the knowledge, skills and abilities to succeed in the field — will be invaluable,” said Tracy Farnsworth, ISU health care administration associate professor and program director, in the release.
Crabtree said he is excited to contribute to the impact of students’ education in the health care administration programs.
“I look forward to sharing the knowledge and experience that I have gained in my career and adding some real-life experiences to the classroom,” Crabtree said in the release.
