Ochsner is proud to offer up to five Operations Fellowships per year. Over the 12-month period, the Fellows have the opportunity to rotate through and experience all aspects of the hospitals, clinics, corporate office and any of the other entities in which interest is expressed. Fellows in the Operations Concentration are exposed to a broad range of hands-on experiences that will prepare them for a successful career in healthcare leadership. Ochsner Health System Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Office, Mike Hulefeld, acts as the Fellowship Program Chair and coordinates involvement with all levels of administration within the organization. Fellows can select areas of concentration according to their own interests and career objectives. The program also focuses on aiding the Fellows in finalizing employment at the end of the Fellowship. Often times, this is within the Ochsner Health System.
The Operations Concentration has been training future leaders for more than 40 years. Professional development is integral to the training and is a fundamental component of the Administrative Fellowship. During each rotation, Fellows are assigned a preceptor who serves as a mentor. Progress evaluations and feedback will be facilitated by the preceptors to ensure continuous competency development of each fellow. Fellows will also be afforded multiple opportunities to work on high-level projects with Executive Leadership. Projects include exposure to clinic and hospital operations, strategic planning, and financial analysis. Ochsner is a continuously growing health system that offers a wide-array of opportunities post-fellowship. In fact, many of the past Administrative Fellows have been offered positions within Ochsner.
