GRADUATE WAYNE SUMMERSET SERVES
AS MANAGER OF RADIATION ONCOLOGY
Wayne Summerset has worked in health care for 25 years, slowly advancing through hospital certificate programs. Through his experience and work ethic, the Port St Lucie resident had reached the limit of career growth without continuing his college education. He enrolled in the Associate in Science Degree program in Health Management, has completed the program with flying colors and will participate in the December 17 Commencement ceremony.
“My courses have impacted my real-life experiences at work,” Summerset said. “I’ve had lots of aha moments in class, understanding the different managerial roles, operations and capital budget.” Every day work details have become a lot clearer to me, making me a better leader. From a convenience standpoint, it’s been very helpful to be able to further my education locally.”
Summerset, 47, handles a wide range of responsibilities as the Manager of Radiation Oncology at Martin Health Systems. He plans to continue to earn a Bachelor’s Degree and then a Master’s Degree, with the goal of advancing to a hospital executive position.
“I want to spend the last 15 years of my career making a difference, serving as a leader and hospital executive.”
