Administrative Fellowship


Resources About Omaha

CHI Health sponsors a 24-month Administrative Fellowship, fostering executive training in an integrated health system environment. The Fellowship is established to train and educate post-graduate students with a complete perspective of both an integrated healthcare system and the healthcare arena in which it operates. Throughout the 24-month Fellowship, the Fellow, the CEO, and the system Executive Leadership Team will work together to craft an experience that matches the Fellow's interests as well as the needs of the organization.

The fellow will spend the first part of his or her fellowship with system leadership attending executive leadership team meetings, board meetings, and engaging in and leading initiatives from the system level. During the remainder of his or her term, the fellow will spend time in the acute hospital setting, in the clinic setting, and in additional areas where the fellow has an interest. In each of these areas, the fellow will be immersed in day-to-day operations and have the opportunity to take ownership of projects and lead initiatives. The fellow shall have access to the system leadership team members and meetings throughout the entire fellowship.
