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 in person or virtually all required meetings throughout the fellowship. Selected fellows should plan to invest an additional day per month throughout the nine-month fellowship.
On occasion, a fellow may find it necessary to participate virtually. In this case, the MHA can arrange for virtual participation. The fellow participating virtually is able to communicate with other fellows and faculty via webinar. Required equipment is a computer with high-speed internet access (webcam is optional).
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 organizational teams.
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!
