What are the fellowship's goals?

Goals include:

  • To foster the training and growth of future executive leaders in departmental and hospital administration and operations.
  • To create a low-risk environment where the fellow can translate administrative theory into action at an early stage in their career.
  • To create leaders in the growing fields of digital health and data analytics and how those implementations relate to hospital operations and finances.
  • To foster early mentor-mentee relationships that span beyond the fellowship and progress the fellow’s career development and advancement.

What will my experience be like?

Participants will have:

  • Protected time to obtain MBA (UMass Isenberg recommended, external MBA available)
