Is this Fellowship right for you?

The Management Fellowship is a two year leadership acceleration program based in Chicago, IL. During the Fellowship, you will be trained in analytic problem-solving, mentored by senior executives, and given the opportunity to develop your leadership capabilities. You will work on teams in a variety of business functions such as hospital operations, clinical strategy, and business development, and will present your analyses and insights to senior executives to drive enterprise initiatives. Based on project need, you may also travel to CTCA hospitals in Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa. At the end of the Fellowship, you will be fully equipped to transition into a leadership position with a focus on growth, innovation and hospital operations. Ideal candidates are: entrepreneurial self-starters, open to taking risks and solving complex problems, and work well in a collaborative setting. Background in health care is not required!

The breakdown of the Fellowship is as follows:

  • First year Fellows develop problem solving skills, build a professional network, and learn about the business of health care. Two to four month projects provide you with an in-depth understanding of specific business units as well as broad exposure across a variety of functions.
  • Second year Fellows lead project teams, guide first years in problem solving, and learn to turn in-depth analyses into high-level insights and presentations to executives. They develop management skills through coaching and providing feedback to first years and running the logistics of the Fellowship program (recruiting, development, orientation, and other functions).
  • Post Fellowship, you will work with senior executives to determine your next career steps, typically as an Enterprise Innovation Manager or in a role within a specific business unit. As an Enterprise Innovation Manager, you will be responsible for building and leading new enterprise capabilities while continuing to work with and mentor First and Second year Fellows. If you enter into a specific business unit, you will use your problem-solving background and leverage your network to accelerate your growth within that team. Regardless of your career path, you will join a community of Fellowship Alumni who provide mentorship, support, and guidance as you jump-start your career.
