Dr. Mason is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon and holds faculty positions in orthopaedics and graduate medical education at the University of Texas, Medical Branch and the University of Louisville respectively. Upon completing her internship in general surgery at UCLA and her orthopaedic surgery residency at Howard University, Dr. Mason served as the CFO of Grant Orthopaedic Bone and Joint Surgeons from 2001 to 2008. This experience as a surgeon and physician administrator of a private practice led her to develop, in partnership with fellow physicians, a comprehensive business of medicine and practice management curriculum for young physicians. Through the founding of OPM Education, Inc. (OPM), a non-profit organization, Dr. Mason delivers this live curriculum to future and practicing physicians nationwide with the support of experienced physician and expert-faculty. The curriculum has since been converted to digital media found at www.BeyondtheExamRoom.com®.
As a surgeon turned physician educator, one of Dr. Mason’s primary endeavors includes serving as the executive director of Nth Dimensions, Inc. (Nth Dimensions). Nth Dimensions is an educational non-profit organization which develops and facilitates scholarship and internship programs focused on increasing diversity in medicine, decreasing gender and health disparities, and promoting professional development of aspiring physicians in orthopaedic surgery and other specialties.
