Fellowship Testimonials

How has the Cone Health Administrative Fellowship Program helped you grow as a healthcare professional?

“The Administrative Fellowship Program at Cone Health exposed me to many different facets of healthcare. The two-year program gave me time to understand the complexities of a health system, work on meaningful projects, and find my passion before graduating and finding an area of focus.”

“The Cone Health Administrative Fellowship provided me a new lens through which to view how and why decisions are made throughout our health system for our patients, staff and community.  The breadth and depth of exposure to service lines and key operating units across the health system allowed me to explore my personal career interests and develop skill sets that have made me a more well-rounded leader.”

“I personally feel that I received about 10 years-worth of experience and learning in the two years that I was a Fellow. The scope and diversity of projects that I was exposed to helped me understand the most effective leadership techniques to produce great results. Even more valuable were the insights and coaching I received from the senior leadership team that helped refine me both as a leader and as a human being.” 

Based on your experience, why would you recommend the Cone Health Administrative Fellowship Program to potential applicants? 

“First, the vision and the culture. Cone Health aspires to be one of the best health systems in the US by always doing the right thing for patients and employees – being a part of this is inspiring. Second, the Cone Health Fellowship is two years, which provides enough time to build relationships, earn trust of senior leadership, and be able to work on significant projects. Cone Health invests in the Fellowship in order to develop future leaders of the organization and the high retention rate of former fellows still working in the organization is proof of that intent.”

“The Fellowship allows you to see how a very large and progressive health care system is operated from the top to the bottom.  You get to see how all the departments are connected and intertwined, which gives the Fellow the opportunity to see what he or she may, or may not be interested in doing.  With the ever-changing landscape of health care, the Fellowship also gives the opportunity to sit in on discussions at the senior executive level. I think it makes you well-rounded in your view of healthcare, while allowing you to be a part of something much bigger than yourself.”

“The access to learning, mentors, projects, board leadership and community involvement makes the Cone Health Administrative Fellowship, without a doubt, one of the best Fellowship Programs in the country.”
