Operations Concentration Frequently Asked Questions


What is a personal statement?

A personal statement is an opportunity for you to introduce yourself to the Fellowship application review committee and bring attention to things that don't appear on a resume or transcript. A comprehensive personal statement should include rationale behind your decision to enter a career in healthcare and why you are specifically interested in pursuing a career at Ochsner. There is no page limitation, but the typical personal statement is one-page long.

Is this a full-time, benefits eligible, paid position?

The Operations Concentration offers a competitive salary and benefits package for the duration of the 12 month rotation.

Can fellows influence their rotation decisions?

The Operations Concentration of the Fellowship has been structured in order to achieve core competencies and experiences defined by program coordinators. Upon completion of the defined set of capabilities, fellows are encouraged to develop and experience additional interests within the organization.

Before beginning their rotations, Fellows will be asked to identify specific areas of interest and/ or particular assignments they would like to experience before the completion of their program. Organizational needs will be matched with individual interest according to resource availability and program development.

What materials should be included in the application packet?

Prospective fellows should submit the following materials:

  • Resume
  • Application Cover Sheet - Complete the form appropriate for the concentration of interest.
  • Personal Statement - See more information above
  • Three (3) Letters of Reference - The reference letters should be a combination of academic and professional references submitted in sealed envelopes, on letterhead.
  • Official Graduate School Transcripts - Please be sure to submit an official copy of your graduate school transcript.
