Operations Concentration

Program Structure

Ochsner offers up to 5 Administrative Operations Fellowships per year. Over the 12-month period, Fellows have the opportunity to rotate through and experience all aspects of Ochsner's hospitals, clinics, corporate office and any of the other entities in which organizational needs are identified and 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.
