"The Emory Healthcare Administrative Fellowship Program provides an incomparable opportunity for fellows to get hands on leadership experience in a complex, integrated delivery system and top tier academic medical center. A major part of the learning is achieved through doing projects, which contribute immensely to the professional development of the fellow and to the quality of care we deliver."

"Working with administrative fellows has given us opportunities to advance key initiatives in more timely and thoughtful ways.  Their work is invaluable!!"

Patrick Hammond, Chief Market Services Officer, Emory Healthcare
"As a 14-year employee of Emory Healthcare, I have personally experienced the value of Emory Healthcare's Administrative Fellowship Program both as a young graduate with little to no work experience and as a hiring executive director.  I started my health care career as an administrative resident at Emory Crawford Long Hospital.  That experience continues to be a tremendous asset to me today because it provided broad exposure to all aspects of the health care delivery system that only an integrated delivery system like Emory Healthcare can provide." 

Dane Peterson, Chief Executive Officer, Emory University Hospital Midtown
"The Emory Healthcare Administrative Fellowship Program provides an incredible opportunity for aspiring health care executives to learn about all aspects of an integrated health care organization - from the inside.  Additionally, our fellows add real value to Emory Healthcare.  The operational, clinical, and programmatic improvements that our fellows lead impact our patients and their families in very meaningful ways."
