Preceptor Testimonial

Cliff Robertson, MD

CEO, CHI Health


"The Administrative Fellowship program is an essential component of CHI Health leadership development at all levels of the organization. The value for the fellow comes from the opportunity to develop leadership abilities and organizational understanding through a combination of access and accountability. Through their support of the program, the Executive Leadership Team gains insight into the fellow’s development as he or she moves from functioning to flourishing within the organization. The organization benefits from the presence of bright, young leaders coming out of their graduate programs eager to lead and serve as change agents.”

"The CHI Health Administrative Fellowship provided an outstanding opportunity to “look under the hood” of a complex integrated health system and gain an understanding of how it functions and adapts to the rapidly changing environment. The Fellow works closely with top executives and has the opportunity to develop relationships and work with leaders throughout the organization in a variety of capacities. CHI Health’s commitment to the fellowship and the flexible structure provide for an exceptional learning environment that can be tailored to the Fellow’s specific interests and career goals. The CHI Health Administrative Fellowship experience was, without a doubt, an extremely beneficial platform to launch my career with the organization."

"The CHI Health Administrative Fellowship proved to be an incredible learning experience for me as an early careerist. It was an invaluable bridge from the classroom to the workforce with a balance of opportunities to observe and lead. The mentorship received, lessons learned and relationships built continue to be beneficial in my current role. CHI Health progressively seeks to improve healthcare for the patients and communities we serve in the region, often leading to change and disruption which in turn creates unique and meaningful fellowship opportunities."
