NYC Health + Hospitals today announced the open application period for the Clinical Leadership Fellowship, a one-year opportunity designed for post-residency graduates interested in administrative roles within the nation’s largest public hospital system. Fellows are assigned to teams within the public health system’s offices of quality, population health, ambulatory care, managed care and patient growth, or medical and professional affairs to acquire hands-on, practical work experience, supplemented with participation in leadership meetings and developing and leading a substantial project within these teams. In addition to their primary administrative responsibilities, fellows also provide clinical care outside their fellowship activities, ensuring they can provide care to some of the City’s most vulnerable patients. The application deadline for the fellowship is Friday, October 29, 2021.
“At NYC Health + Hospitals, we’re big on breaking down status quos and integrating new, creative methods of medicine that further benefit our patients, said NYC Health + Hospitals Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer Machelle Allen, MD. “Each year, our fellows bring these ideas with them, all gathered through their lived-experiences, as well as their diverse academic and professional background. This is the perspective that makes our medicine more socially and culturally sound.”
“Year-over-year, we’ve seen each class of Clinical Leadership fellows provide insightful and innovative ideas to support our health system’s clinical and administrative priorities – from our emphasis on primary care, emergency management around the pandemic, and now continuing to make headway with vaccinating New Yorkers against COVID-19,” said NYC Health + Hospitals Senior Vice President of Managed Care and Patient Growth Matthew Siegler.
The curriculum for the fellows includes fundamentals of leadership and administration, population health approaches to improving outcomes, team facilitation and change management, fundamentals of quality improvement and science of quality measurement, developing and implementing quality improvement initiatives, and designing safe systems and building a “just” culture. As part of their participation, fellows will be required to design and lead a quality improvement or population health-oriented project at their sponsoring facility.
“I have had the pleasure of working with a number of Clinical Leadership Fellows that have played critical roles in some of our health system’s biggest initiatives, such as NYC Care and our COVID-19 response through the Test & Trace Corps,” said Dr. Ted Long, Executive Director of the NYC Test &Trace Corps and Senior Vice President for Ambulatory Care and Population Health at NYC Health + Hospitals.
“Continuing to create pathways for clinicians from different walks of life to join our public hospital system helps us further our commitment to provide culturally sensitive and competent care to all New Yorkers,” said NYC Health + Hospitals Chief Population Health Officer Nichola Davis, MD. “Our Clinical Leadership Fellowship is just one more example of how we keep that rich pipeline strong.”
“Our Clinical Leaders fellows have supported our health system’s priorities with the same passion and drive we all share towards our mission of providing high-quality, comprehensive care to every New Yorker,” said NYC Health + Hospitals Senior Vice President and Chief Quality Officer Eric Wei, MD, MBA.
