The Administrative Fellowship at Emerson Hospital provided me with the skill set and tools needed to be a successful health care professional. The structure of the fellowship allowed me to experience a wide range of projects and work with numerous departments throughout Emerson. Serving as a float manager, generating metrics for staff, and assisting in opening brand new practices are just a few examples of what I spent my time on here at Emerson as a fellow. The senior leadership team was beyond generous with their time, which allowed me to build close relationships across the organization. All of these experiences as a fellow helped me reach my ultimate goal of moving into a full-time manager position at Emerson.

The Administrative Fellowship at Emerson Hospital with Emerson Practice Associates (EPA) is a fantastic opportunity. The ability to be exposed directly to all levels of the management of an employed physician group provides in-depth knowledge and extraordinary experience as health care transitions from in-patient to ambulatory settings. I observe and participate with EPA leadership in operational and strategic decision making, while also experiencing and learning the front-line operations of a physician practice. Further, I hone my project management and leadership skills through a variety of projects crucial to EPA.

I am confident that my fellowship experience with Emerson Practice Associates has shaped me into an effective health care leader, particularly as an early careerist. While the didactic portion of my Master of Health Administration program provided me with a foundational knowledge of health care management, Emerson has given me the platform to translate education to practice. This comprehensive experience has afforded me the opportunity for hands-on involvement in such departments as provider engagement, operations, and revenue cycle management, in addition to the responsibility of oversight of two outpatient practices. In a period in which the consolidation and acquisition of outpatient practices by health care systems is occurring at an unprecedented rate, the chance to acquire the skill set to effectively manage such locations of care is invaluable. The fellowship with Emerson Practice Associates has delivered that chance and more.
