Ochsner is proud to offer several Finance Fellow opportunities per year. Over a 24-month period, Finance Fellows have the opportunity to rotate through and experience aspects of the hospitals, clinics, corporate office and any of the other entities in which interest is expressed. Administrative Fellows are exposed to a broad range of hands-on experiences that will prepare them for a successful career in healthcare leadership. Jeff Saucier, System Vice President of Financial Planning and Analytics, acts as the preceptor for the Fellows and coordinates involvement with all levels of administration within the organization. Fellows will concentrate on areas associated with finance and the revenue cycle, as well as those areas related to their own interests and career objectives.
Fellows will focus on core competencies related to Medical Operations within Hospital & Clinic Settings:
- Revenue Cycle
- General Accounting Functions
- Operational Finance Functions
- Corporate Structure
- Supply Chain
After the completion of these rotations, fellows will experience a more focused training associated with organizational need matched with candidate's interest. Each rotation will serve as a learning experience for the fellow by testing abilities, as well as instilling applicable system and divisional knowledge related to the strategic plan of our organization. Applicable project work will be assigned within each rotation in order to ensure the Fellow's progress is meeting the expectations of the program. In addition to departmental designated projects, fellows will also have the opportunity to seek out projects that meet their personal career objectives.
Professional development is a fundamental component of the Finance Concentration. Fellows will be assigned to a preceptor who will be responsible for serving as a mentor throughout each rotation. Project reporting, progress evaluations, and feedback will be facilitated by preceptors to ensure continuous competency development of each fellow. Fellows will also have the opportunity to collaborate with executives and senior administration throughout the duration of the program. Examples of Fellow participation and leadership interaction include:
- Monthly Operating Reviews
- System Quarterly Reviews
- Bi-weekly CFO Meetings
- Financial Planning & Analytics Training
- Executive Retreats
- Professional Healthcare Conferences
- Various Senior Leadership Meetings
- Strategic Planning Sessions
