HEALTH POLICY & MANAGEMENT FELLOWSHIP
Begin your post-master’s career in Health Care Administration with
Hoag in Orange County, California. The Hoag Hospital system is quickly
becoming one the most recognizable names in clinical integration, innovation,
superior outcomes, and high value healthcare. These unique one-year fellowships
include rotations across two campuses, Hoag Hospital (Newport Beach) and
Hoag Orthopedic Institute (Irvine), giving fellows exposure to both a
large community - based hospital and a joint venture physician/hospital-owned
specialty hospital. In this value-based program, administrative fellows
work alongside surgical fellows and rotate with executive and physician
leaders from both campuses to promote superior patient outcomes and the
highest quality care. Fellows will also have the opportunity to lead projects,
make presentations, attend educational sessions and engage in healthcare
advocacy by meeting with elected officials. Graduates of this program
will be positioned to serve as leaders and change agents for healthcare.
The fellowship program has been designed to provide:
- A knowledge of healthcare dynamics, gained from working with administrative
and physician leaders at various levels of the Hoag Orthopedic Institute
and Hoag Hospital, Newport Beach;
- An opportunity for fellows to obtain an applied foundation in healthcare
economics that combine patient outcome measurements, cost analysis, pricing
bundles, system integration, and shared leadership;
- An appreciation for the common values shared by all health care professionals
at the Hoag Orthopedic Institute and Hoag Hospital;
- A progressive experience with the goal of preparing administrative fellows
for a leadership career founded on the ethos of high value healthcare
- A unique side-by-side experience with Orthopedic Surgical Fellows to establish
a strong understanding of and appreciation for the concept of collaboration/partnership.
The fellowship is a structured one-year program comprised of eight core
rotations. The program begins on August 1st each year, in alliance with
the surgical fellowship programs. Project-based in nature, the fellow
and the designated preceptor determine the appropriate project portfolio
that ensures an engaging learning environment and the ability to translate
academic theory into practice.
Core rotations include:
- Strategic Analytics
- Performance Improvement & Clinical Outcomes
- Finance & Managed Care Contracting
- Operations & Institutes
- Human Resources & Physician Relations
- Planning, Strategy, & New Ventures
- Marketing, Corporate Communications, & Patient Experience
During each rotation, fellows participate in fundamental projects that
support ongoing departmental initiatives and develop core competencies.
The responsibilities and assignments are primarily project oriented. The
fellows are exposed to senior-level decision-making processes and participate
in team decision making to learn about the interdependent nature of hospital
departments. With guidance from mentors, fellows are also encouraged to
seek exposure to activities outside of their core rotations. A broad network
of individuals also provides continuous support to the fellows.
During each rotation, the fellow will be assigned a senior level preceptor
who provides feedback and direction for assigned projects. In addition,
the fellowship mentors are readily available to assist in the fellows’
professional development throughout the duration of the program.
In conjunction with their rotations, fellows have the opportunity to further
develop their leadership skills by:
- Participating in a structured mentorship program
- Attending institutional leadership committees
- Holding informational meetings with key executives
- Attending industry conference(s)
The fellowship requires a capstone project in value-based medicine. Fellows
are expected to submit abstracts of their projects to major industry meetings
and journals. A completed manuscript ready for submission for publication
is expected by the end of the fellowship year. Fellows will present their
research to the community at a symposium held by Hoag Orthopedics.
SALARY, VACATION, AND TRAVEL
Fellows are paid at the PGY-6 level including benefits and receive two
weeks of paid vacation. In addition, travel accommodations and reimbursements
are granted for the Fellow to attend at least one industry conference.
