Dr. Slavin graduated from Harvard College in 1979, Harvard Medical School in 1984, and Harvard Business School in 1990.

He did his training in Internal Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital from 1984 to 1987.  While on staff at MGH, he attended Harvard Business School and developed the hospital’s first quality and utilization management program.  In 1994, he was appointed as Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer.

In 1997, he was recruited to serve as the first president of the recently merged Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, the adult teaching hospital of the Washington University Medical Center.  In 1999, he returned to Boston to serve as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Massachusetts General Physicians Organization, which included over 1,700 physicians and employed nearly 1,000 of them.
