Executive Health Program
A Message from Dr. Colgan
The University of Maryland Executive Health Program provides busy executives with an efficient, cost-effective way to manage their health without the time-consuming hassles of scheduling appointments, tests, and specialist consultations.
The University’s Executive Health team of physicians are experts in their fields as well as professors and researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, included among the fastest-growing research enterprises in the country. Our patients receive care from doctors who study, teach, and are trained in the latest advances in medicine and patient care.
Your day will include a comprehensive, head-to-toe health assessment, tailored to meet your specific needs— based on your medical history, lifestyle, and current health status. The level of care and individualized attention that you will receive reaches far beyond anything possible during a typical physical exam. This is a rare opportunity for some of the best medical minds in the world to focus on your healthcare.
By the end of the day, your personal team of physicians will analyze your examinations, bloodwork, and test results. Your team will provide you with a full assessment and a roadmap for optimal health to improve your quality of life and increase longevity.
