Dr. Paula Harmon achieves an Emory Executive MBA

Dr. Paula Harmon, pediatric otolaryngologist and head and neck surgeon at Pediatric ENT of Atlanta, adds an Emory Executive MBA to her list of accomplishments.  

As if she didn’t have enough to do over the past year attending school, Dr. Harmon treated thousands of patients, performed life-changing surgeries, served as the Managing Partner at Pediatric ENT of Atlanta, served as the Medical Director of Hearing Loss at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Physician Champion for the American Academy of Pediatrics-Georgia Chapter.

Now, add in the founding of Free Covid Testing Centers (a division of Top Dog Solutions), a medical provider of COVID Testing and Vaccines treating over 20,000 Americans in the Southeast and East Coast. Plus, the significant role of Mom to four children ages two to eleven, with the support of her husband, Dale – who also operates his own business.

Fast forward to May of 2021, and she is walking across the stage to accept her Executive MBA and Business of Healthcare Certification from the Emory University’s Goizueta Business School.

When asked about where she obtained her ambitions, she said, “It all comes from my parents; it’s in our DNA.” Adding, “I chose to return to school and sharpen my business skills. I always knew that I would obtain an MBA but wanted to complete it before my eldest child entered middle school – the tough years.”

Dr. Harmon obtained her Bachelor of Science degree at Spelman College, earned her Doctor of Medicine from Morehouse School of Medicine, completed her residency in Otolaryngology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and her fellowship in Pediatric Otolaryngology at Children’s of Alabama with a focus on cochlear implantation and severe ear disease. In addition, she earned her Executive MBA and Business of Healthcare Certification from the Emory University’s Goizueta Business School, serves as a business advisor and board member with several companies in Atlanta and is a former Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology at Emory University.

The physicians and staff and Pediatric ENT of Atlanta are exceptionally proud of Dr. Harmon’s accomplishments and proud of the care delivered to the patient-families we serve.
