Catching up with Stephanie Argyropoulos '09
Tucked away in the beautiful Charlestown Navy Yard is the office of Stephanie Argyropoulos, Program Manager at the MGH Institute of Health Professions. The graduate school, founded by the highly respected Massachusetts General Hospital, offers educational advancement opportunities ranging from the School of Nursing to the Center for Interprofessional Studies and Innovation. Stephanie, however, focuses mainly on the PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences Program.
She has been with the MGH Institute for just over two years now, beginning her position shortly after completing her Master of Business Administration from Iona College in 2012. The functions of the role range from finance and budget to event planning and grant administration, allowing Stephanie to use the educational experience she received from both her MBA and her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication from Curry.
"There are many different facets of my current position that each of my degrees has separately and appropriately prepared me for. I am able to ensure that the budget process runs smoothly and that the information will be submitted correctly because of my financial background. I am also very mindful of the importance of communication because of the skills I attained during my studies at Curry."
At the MGH Institute, Stephanie has moved through the ranks in just a short period of time and is now the Program Manager of the prominent PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences Program. The students in this program come from a mix of rehabilitation-related disciplines, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, rehabilitation nursing, and/or physiatry/rehabilitation medicine.
In addition to her day-to-day responsibilities in her Program Manager role, she is also involved with the PhD Executive Committee, the Research and Operations Committee, and a few others.
Each day at the MGH Institute of Health Professions Stephanie is able to learn and grow in her role, from her coworkers, the students in the PhD Program, or the outstanding Faculty who are prominent figures in the health industry, she is grateful for everything this position has and will provide.
"After I got my Master's, I was receiving information about various PhD Programs in my field and when I told my family and friends I was actually considering another degree they all joked that I would be a student forever if I could. They were right. While I decided a PhD was not for me, I find it quite fitting that I ended up at a Higher Education Institution as a Program Manager of a PhD Program. I can attribute this aspect of my life to my four years at Curry. Curry instilled this love of learning that I know I will always carry with me and I am forever grateful for that."
