Dr. Salman Khan
Salman serves as the CEO of National Foot & Ankle Partners, a physician centric company focused on enabling independent foot & ankle surgery / podiatry practices to thrive.
As a husband to a practicing foot & ankle surgeon (a graduate of Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine), the rewards and challenges of foot & ankle healthcare is part of the family – and he has a deep appreciation and understanding for the professionals who practice it.
Salman himself is a physician by background and completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cardiothoracic Transplantation Immunology at Yale University School of Medicine.
However, during the course of his medical training, he was increasingly captivated by how healthcare systems are developed and organized to allow healthcare delivery at scale. This prompted the decision to play a broader role within the healthcare ecosystem rather than practicing clinical medicine & surgery - and he found the ideal starting point through joining McKinsey & Company - a global management consulting firm.
At McKinsey & Company’s NYC office - Salman focused on serving clients across the full range of healthcare sectors, including pharmaceuticals, health insurance as well as government led health care services.
Salman subsequently went on to become a Principal in the Health Insurance and Hospital focused practice at The Boston Consulting Group, another global management consulting firm.
He thereafter served as the Head of Operations for an established and growth-stage health tech company called Zocdoc and oversaw the scale up of multiple operational teams serving small medical practice as well as large hospital clients
Prior to becoming CEO of National Foot & Ankle Partners, Salman founded and ran a thriving management consulting practice serving the operational and strategic needs of a wide variety of healthcare clients which included PE backed medical practice platforms as well as health insurance clients from the large nationals to local Blue plans.
