Macy Scott, MBA-Healthcare Administration
Having now completed her MBA in Healthcare Administration at Baylor, Macy Scott, a 2020 Medical Humanities graduate is currently a clinic operations manager for Baylor Scott & White's OB/GYN department in College Station, Texas. In this role, she manages a team of 30 staff members including CMA's, nurses, schedulers, and providers which she finds very rewarding. Macy says, “Since before I came to Baylor, health care administration has always been my passion. It’s the glue that holds the whole health care enterprise together and medical humanities helps me make sure I keep patients where they belong—at the center!” She followed her passions in completing her major in Medical Humanities with a double minor in sociology and French.

A native of Shreveport, Louisiana, Macy was attracted to Baylor because of the warm people and the welcoming atmosphere. “I definitely found a home at Baylor,” she says. Her favorite courses at Baylor were Disability and Society, Sociology of Medicine, and Christian Spirituality and Health Care. As a Christian, Macy thinks Baylor and Medical Humanities has made a profound difference in helping her develop her faith and find the unique ways to live out her Christian vocation in health care administration. During her last couple of Baylor years, Macy was a member of the highly selective Medical Humanities Honors Council, a group of students who excel academically and in their participation in extracurricular activities. She is a regular lecturer in our Introduction to Medical Humanities classes so that the next generation of students get to hear her vision.
Though it might seem like a unique path, Macy says she did not take a single business class while an undergraduate. While she says she definitely studied harder in her MBA finance and accounting classes as a result, she says her medical humanities background set her apart when interviewing for residency positions. “Everybody wanted to talk about it,” she says.
