Robert Carroll, A.M., M.B.A.
Robert Carroll's thirty year career in healthcare began in 1977 with the decision to work in a field with the greatest scope for incorporating the ideals and insights of intrapsychic humanism. After receiving a B.A. in History in 1978 from Roosevelt University in Chicago, he received a M.A. from the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago. From 1980 until 1988 he practiced as a clinical social worker on the inpatient units of the Institute of Psychiatry of Northwestern Memorial Hospital. There he saw how the business forces shaping insurance coverage for mental illness had become a pervasive and distorting influence on psychological treatment, theory, and practice. This led to a strong interest in the business structures shaping healthcare in the U.S. After earning an M.B.A. from the Graduate School of Business of the University of Chicago in 1990, he was a hospital planner at Little Company of Mary Hospital and then a strategic financial planning consultant to hospital and physician organizations throughout the U.S. for thirteen years.
