to how a complex health care system functions. The Fellow will have a
diverse, hands-on experience with the opportunity to experience areas
such as corporate structure, capital finance, operations, and
system-wide strategic planning. The Fellow will explore various project
opportunities through rotations with Senior Executives and work with
his/her preceptors in the selection of project work to align with the
Fellow’s objectives and the organization’s needs. Projects will help the
Fellow develop leadership, interpersonal communication, and
decision-making skills. In addition to project work, the Fellow will
