“When speaking to our future leaders, I tell them The Academy GE Fellows Program is a ‘one-stop-shop.’ Normally, for career advancement, mentorship, content, networking, experience, and exposure to new ways of thinking are required. Ordinarily, one would have to accomplish this through several different programs and cobble them together. With The Academy GE Fellows Program, all the pieces are in one neat package.” Rod Hochman, M.D., President & CEO Providence
