University of Central Florida; Project Manager | Enterprise Program Management Office | Rochester Regional Health. Years of Fellowship: 2018 - 2019. “The Fellowship Program has been the single most impactful experience of my career. It allowed me to explore new areas of healthcare that I hadn’t previously explored, hone my technical skills, and develop genuine relationships with leaders that have shaped me into a better leader. My experiences working with physicians, executives, vendors, and staff have allowed me to grow both personally and professionally. The “Build-Your-Own Experience” structure provides endless opportunities to learn and find your interests. I’m very grateful to have served as a Fellow, and know that I will carry the skills and knowledge that I gained throughout the rest of my career.”
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; Program Manager | Geriatric Surgery Center of Excellence | Rochester Regional Health. Years of Fellowship: 2017 - 2019. “I think the most impactful aspect of the fellowship, for me, was the realistic way it shaped my future career goals. The leadership at Rochester Regional Health provided me with direct opportunities to feel ownership over complex projects, feel responsibility to deliver on goals, while lending appropriate support. This style of mentorship allowed me to develop project management skills, by managing actual projects. My current role is a direct result of the work I was allowed to do, and the relationships I was able to develop during the fellowship.”
Georgia Southern University; Wellness Program Manager | The Jackson Laboratory. Years of Fellowship: 2017 - 2018. “The RRH Administrative Fellowship Program allowed me to grow, both professionally and personally, while building a unique foundation for my career in healthcare.

University of Kansas School of Medicine; Associate Consultant | Sg2. Years of Fellowship: 2018 - 2019. “The opportunity to complete an administrative fellowship at Rochester Regional Health has been the most impactful experience in my professional and personal life. The structure of the fellowship allowed for me to complete complex projects while working alongside system leaders who have become great mentors. While working on various projects, I was able to identify areas of interest within the health system to help guide my future career plans. The fellowship creates opportunities for skill development and relationship building; in addition to, fostering an environment that helps young healthcare professionals learn and grow in a meaningful way. I’m extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to serve as a fellow, and know that I will take what I have learned and use it throughout the rest of my career.”
Imperial College London; Manager | Medical and Social Day Cares | Rochester Regional Health. Years of Fellowship: 2018 - 2019. “I was very excited at the opportunity to do a Fellowship at RRH because the unique project based approach allowed me a hands on opportunity to leverage the experience I had gained working on brands and projects in the Consumer Goods space, whilst at the same time learning more about health care operations and processes. Being involved in, and managing system wide initiatives allowed me grow my skill set in people management, leadership, operations competence and conflict resolution. The sum total of my experiences as an Administrative Fellow – be it from touring all our hospitals and facilities, to shadowing operational leaders, shadowing the OR, access to the C suite and enjoying festivals, food, wine and people - have allowed me to adopt, accept and appreciate brand Rochester regional and has enhanced my journey to becoming a health system leader.”
The Ohio State University; Project Manager | DSRIP | Rochester Regional Health. Years of Fellowship: 2018 - 2019. “Looking back, I cannot believe how much I have grown in just a year. The fellowship program has been such an amazing experience for me and I am so grateful for all of the opportunities that I have been afforded. The fellowship has opened up so many doors for me that I am sure would not be available elsewhere or through more traditional routes. I owe much of my success to the support system that comes with the fellowship – the ‘friends of the fellows’, mentors, co-fellows, and especially the preceptors. Through the guidance of everyone associated with the fellowship, I was able to explore areas of healthcare that I never would have, try experiences that made me uncomfortable (in a good way) and challenge my skills. The fellowship has given me the foundation of knowledge and competencies that I trust will be instrumental in developing my career in healthcare.”
University of Central Florida; Project Manager | RRH Integration. Years of Fellowship: 2016 - 2018. “I chose to remain employed with Rochester Regional Health because this organization believes in their mission, vision, and values while engaging with the community for greater impact. Rochester Regional Health continuously invests in growing their employees, including the administrative fellowship program, through education and mentorship. They pursue best practices and innovative concepts like sustainability in healthcare. It is difficult to choose any one program feature that I appreciate more than others because the program is so dynamic and offers a variety of healthcare experiences. If I had to choose though, I would say that I love how Rochester Regional Health empowers their employees to develop innovative forward thinking ideas for implementation. They truly engage their employees, visitors, and community members from all levels. This is a fellowship program where professional growth and success is inevitable as well as fostered.”

University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. “The Rochester Regional Health Administrative Fellowship provided me an opportunity to work alongside the Senior and Executive leadership team of a young, quickly growing integrated healthcare delivery system early in my career. Those interactions and relationships have allowed me to learn from a diverse team with a myriad of perspectives and approaches to delivering healthcare in a challenging and unique market like Western New York. Being able to take on projects across services lines like Behavioral Health, Long Term Care, and Surgery allowed me to observe and contribute to several unique care delivery models which I feel gave me a broad base of experiences to pull on for my current role – experiences that I know I wouldn’t have acquired until much later in my career.”
The University of Scranton. "My fellowship at Rochester Regional Health has been a catalyst for my healthcare career; the mentorship, opportunities, network, and most importantly, confidence that I have gained has been invaluable. Given the project-based structure and access to the entire enterprise, I was permitted to explore a wide variety of interests in healthcare. We still had the guidance of our cohort, preceptors but the autonomy to function like internal consultants for special projects. My current role after fellowship was a direct result of projects I had worked on with the graduate medical education team, and I am still fortunate to work alongside leaders that are committed to my growth. The fellowship has provided me with a network within the organization that made for an easier transition to my current position."
