Dr. Thorpe was born in North Carolina to wonderful parents who were career educators at the college level. They instilled in him the important values of faith in God, hard work, education, family, responsibility, caring for your neighbors and fulfilling your dreams with integrity. Those fundamental values have shaped his character and his career and formed the basis for his lifelong commitment as a strong conservative. They taught him that America is the greatest country and to look for opportunities not excuses.
After working hard and successfully completing honors classes in high school, Dr Thorpe was widely recruited as a star basketball player by over 100 major colleges and eventually chose Duke University after receiving a phone call from Duke president Terry Sanford, a former US Senator.
Early during his college years, Dr. Thorpe lost his father to cancer, his grandmother, his dog, and several other family members within a three month period. Mentored by Coach K, he made an important decision then to commit himself even more to excellence in his pre-med studies and he graduated with a 3.5 GPA and a BS in Psycholgy and Biology.
Dr. Thorpe received his MD and a Master’s Degree in Public Health from the U of North Carolina. He completed his internship in internal medicine and psychiatry at Tulane Medical Center. Instead of clinical medicine, he decided to focus on healthcare administration and reform and his career has been marked with great achievements in this field.
In 2004, Gov Jeb Bush asked Dr Thorpe to serve as Secretary of Florida’s Agency for Healthcare Administration and then in 2005 he was appointed Florida’s Chief Medical Officer for AHCA. Dr. Thorpe has also served as Chair of Health Care IT Committee of Broward County Medical Association and Dr Thorpe was elected Chair of the Medicaid Reform Advocates Coalition, an organization composed of 99% democrats.
Dr Thorpe also developed a master plan for Public-Private-Partnerships between Hospitals & Community that is widely recognized as creative and highly cost-effective.
