  • executive shadowing and senior leadership meetings
  • one-on-one mentoring
  • a wide range of intensive project work

The 18-month rotational fellowship program is a paid full-time position with available benefits package, including 18 vacation days-accrued and 8 paid holidays. Ochsner may offer fellowship opportunities in different regions and may require candidate(s) to travel or relocate.
