Before joining CVS Caremark in 2008, Brennan served as chief medical officer for Aetna Inc and president and CEO of Brigham and Women's Physicians Organization in Boston, MA. He is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences. He has his MD and MPH from Yale Medical School, a JD from Yale Law School, a MA from Oxford University and a BS from Southern Methodist University, Texas. He has served on the faculties of Harvard Medical School, Harvard Law School and the Harvard School of Public Health.
