The success and value of the MHA Excellence in Governance Fellowship is embodied in the committed and highly qualified faculty and facilitators involved in the program. The fellowship uses expert faculty in the areas of healthcare delivery, governance, legal issues, quality and patient safety, and leadership.
Fellows are expected to invest the time and energy needed to complete all of the activities planned for the fellowship. This learning experience is designed so that significant peer-to-peer learning will occur. Therefore, fellows should plan to attend all in-person and virtual meetings throughout the fellowship. Homework assignments will require a small amount of additional time.
With smartphones, tablets and apps changing the face of modern life, it’s only natural that these technologies would change educational opportunities too. Digital platforms have become popular for providing education at a reasonable cost. Virtual participation complements traditional participation as organizations balance time and resources.
A virtual learning environment simulates a classroom by simultaneously mixing several communication technologies. Fellows and instructors can communicate via a webcam and microphone (optional) or through a computer with high-speed internet access and a phone line.
Learning from and with peers only enhances the value of an educational experience. The MHA Excellence in Governance Fellowship is designed for experienced board members, and multiple board members from the same organization are invited to apply to become fellows. Tuition is discounted for more than one board member enrolling from the same organization.
Reasons to Return
Many hospitals use the fellowship to develop board members and, in particular, those moving into officer positions. We think that is a rousing endorsement! We are so committed to being your exclusive partner in governance development, we offer any organization that has sent a fellow to previous classes a discount in tuition costs. Your organization wins both financially and through the ongoing development of skilled board members — that’s just one more solid reason to nominate board members for this outstanding program!
