The experience is capped off by a two-day closing retreat.

"As the global center for healthcare delivery and collaboration, Nashville is the only place where this one-of-a-kind leadership experience can take place," said Council President Hayley Hovious. "The Fellows program allows the Council to continue its commitment to cultivating collaboration and developing leadership among executives from top healthcare organizations across the country, of all sizes and sectors."
