|News from our Student Representative|
Research indicates that ACHE members attribute their transition to a healthcare leadership position to their past residencies and fellowship experiences. With the demand of effective health care leaders for our changing and complex healthcare field, it is critical to continue to attract and develop highly qualified professionals. Across the country there are postgraduate fellowships for students and early careerist to assist new entrants to the profession in their transition from academically acquired knowledge to the actual management of healthcare organizations. However, there are no postgraduate fellowships in Hawaii to develop effective healthcare leaders for our state.
Recently, ACHE has come out with a number of online resources to help your organization develop a postgraduate fellowship and recruit qualified applicants. ACHE has resources ranging from manuals, surveys, templates, and checklists to help organizations design a postgraduate fellowship, manage a logistics, create a compensation plan, and provide benefits on recruiting, on-boarding, and post-fellowship transition.
If you are a health organization interested in developing and designing a post-fellowship, please contact Denise Della (ACHE Hawai’i Pacific Chapter Student Representative) at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
