The Academy GE Fellows Program is a two-year program designed to prepare executives from Leading Health Systems with essential healthcare knowledge, leadership skills, and business acumen to take on C-suite positions. Focused on high-potential Administrative, Finance, Nurse and Physician senior leaders one-to-three positions away from the C-suite, the program prepares graduates to lead through collaboration, drive innovation, and practice adaptive and predictive thinking. Upon graduation, Fellows are equipped with the context and perspective necessary to lead nationally-competitive health systems.
Core curriculum topics range from health policy, advocacy and ethics, health services finance, executive leadership strategies and more.
During the two-year program, each Fellow works with their health system mentor and CEO to identify and lead a system-level change management project.
The Academy’s Executives-in-Residence are recently retired health system executives with extensive industry knowledge and expertise.
“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
