This Fellowship Program is a 2-year immersive program that provides hands-on involvement with Emergency Department and Hospital Leadership with optional concurrent enrollment in a Masters’ program (MBA, MMM, MHA, MPH).

Administrative Leadership of Hospitals and Emergency Departments, in particular, is a critical area of expertise and requires understanding the complexities that comprise the dynamic. This program is designed to facilitate the Fellow’s education, experience, and understanding of this complex system. By giving them the tools and resources to be actively involved yet still under the mentorship of Physician Leaders, the learning curve for the development of a successful Physician Leader is greatly reduced.

Educational Components:
Will be addressed in critical areas such as credentialing, risk management, quality, billing and coding, budgetary responsibilities, accreditation requirements and management of criteria adherence, conflict resolution, operational low processes, and contract negotiations. Multiple other areas will be addressed as well for the successful and elective development of the physician leader.
