Administrative fellows will be part of a longstanding and evolving health system, allowing them the opportunity to embrace the mission and ministry of HSHS. Typically, administrative fellows spend one year at our System Services Center in Springfield, Illinois, and one year at one of our 15 local system hospitals, the HSHS Medical Group, or Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants.
Fellows will gain a thorough understanding of the System Services Center functions. Based on the needs of the local systems, as well as the fellows' needs, they may be assigned to one of the local health center communities, or the HSHS Medical Group, where they will leverage their experience to help implement HSHS programs.
Administrative fellows report directly to HSHS Chief Human Resource Officer, David Beach.
The fellows will spend the first month of the program shadowing senior operational leaders to orient operations of the system and become acquainted with leaders across the system. In the months to follow, fellows will rotate throughout departments in the system completing projects. Rotations provide high-level exposure and hands-on project involvement in the following areas:
Fellows will have the opportunity to choose or create multiple elective rotations. Opportunities include rotating with the HSHS Medical Group, Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants, Legal, Risk, IT, and Mission.
Fellows can expect the opportunity to attend local and system board meetings, travel with leaders to locations across the system and attend professional development conferences.
The second year of the fellowship gives fellows in-depth expertise within a specific area of interest. Based on personal interest and the needs of the organization, fellows identify a focus and work with senior leaders in that area. Second-year placement could be at any of the 15 local hospitals, the HSHS Medical Group, Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants, or in the System Services Center.
