Program Structure


Administrative Fellows report directly to HSHS Senior Vice President and 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 11 months to follow, fellows will rotate throughout departments in the system, completing functional and operational projects. Rotations provide high-level exposure and hands-on project involvement in the following areas:

• Human Resources

• Quality

• Mission

• Communications

• Supply Chain

• Strategy

• Finance

Although based in the System Services Center, fellows can expect the opportunity to attend local and system board meetings, travel with leaders to locations across the system (Wisconsin and Illinois) and attend professional development conferences.

Second Year of System Administrative Fellowship

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 six month placement could be at any of the nine Illinois or six Wisconsin hospitals, the HSHS Medical Group, Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants, or at the System Services Center.

After 18 months, our goal is to find our fellows a permanent leadership role with HSHS in an area based on needs of the organization.
