BOSTON: An Indian-American Harvard Professor has been named as one of the Top 25 Women in Healthcare in the US by Modern Healthcare magazine.

Tejal K Gandhi, president and chief executive officer of the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF), has been named as one of the country's Top 25 Women in Healthcare in the sixth biennial list of women leaders compiled by the magazine.

"I'm honoured to be recognised by Modern Healthcare," said Gandhi in a statement.

"Women certainly make up a large part of the health care workforce, and having that perspective represented at leadership levels is a trend that I hope will continue to gain traction," she said.

Gandhi was one of 200 women nominated for the list through an open call for nominations last December. The list was published in the April issue of the magazine.

A review board composed of senior editors of Modern Healthcare selected the finalists by judging the candidates on a broad range of criteria, including their willingness to share their expertise with others in the field, to serve as role models or mentors to others, and their ability and power to effect change.

Gandhi also holds an appointment as associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

This is the first time she has appeared on the Top 25 Women in Healthcare list.

Earlier this year, she was included in Modern Healthcare's list of 50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders.

In August 2014, she was included in the magazine's list of 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.
