Yele Aluko MD, MBA is Chief Medical Officer at EY Americas. His work spans the health value chain across providers, payers, life sciences and public health where he advises health system C-suite and senior executives on strategy and business operations, and provides insight on megatrends confronting the health industry. He is a proven physician executive and corporate leader with astute understanding of strategy that develops competitive advantage for healthcare organizations. As Director of the EY Center for Health Equity, he leads EY teams in the design of customized strategy, solutions and competency building for health sector organizations and leaders seeking to achieve Health Equity.

Prior to joining EY in 2016, he practiced cardiovascular medicine and interventional cardiology for 25 years at a southeast USA regional integrated healthcare system. As system Senior Vice president for heart and vascular services, he led enterprise clinical integration strategy, operations management, and care delivery within the heart and vascular service line across the fifteen-hospital, four state health system footprint. Yele made a deliberate decision to retire from clinical medicine, seeking a larger geographic footprint of influence and a louder megaphone for amplification of the imperative for industry transformation. Informed by his extensive clinical, physician executive and administrative leadership, coupled with his business school training, he brings a unique perspective to industry solutioning, seeking to facilitate value delivery to the ultimate industry stakeholder – the consumer.

He obtained his MBA from Wake Forest University School of Business, Interventional Cardiology Fellowship from University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Invasive Cardiology Fellowship from Cornell University Medical Center, General Cardiology Fellowship and an Internal Medicine Residency from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University.
