The Fellows Initiative


 

Launched by the Nashville Health Care Council amid unprecedented industry change in 2013, the Fellows initiative is aimed at improving the way health care executives meet their most critical challenges.

The course kicks off with a two-day orientation retreat, followed by eight full-day sessions over four months, where class members investigate and evaluate new ideas to address the hurdles facing the U.S. healthcare system.

"As the global center for healthcare collaboration, Nashville is proud to welcome this group of esteemed leaders and influencers to hold the conversations that will lead the industry forward," said Hayley Hovious, Council president. "The Fellows program represents the Council's commitment to fostering collaboration and developing leadership among executives from top healthcare organizations across the country, of all sizes and sectors. There has never been a better time to participate in this one-of-a-kind leadership experience."

Led by a faculty of internationally known experts and thought leaders, the program's curriculum addresses topics such as new care delivery models, the ongoing evolution of reimbursement models and value-based care, disruptive innovation, population health management and globalization.

"The key to the Fellows program lies in challenging these executives to think differently about how they approach even the most basic decisions in health care, ultimately arming them with the knowledge to transform the way they operate," said Van Horn, a leading expert in healthcare management and economics, and professor at Vanderbilt University's Owen Graduate School of Management. "Throughout our time together, a sense of trust and openness develops among participants that is both rare and refreshing, but also critical to fostering the meaningful dialogue this program depends on. I am excited for this year's class to leave its mark on the Fellows program."

Fellows has an enduring impact on its graduates, and the alumni program ensures that members continue collaboration long after their graduation. Each graduating class joins a distinguished group of alumni already applying their Fellows experience in the field.

"Participating in Fellows has proven to be one of the more thought-provoking and rewarding experiences of my professional career," said Marc Watkins, MD, CMO at The Little Clinic (Fellows Class of 2016). "The conversations in the classroom, as well as the relationships which now extend far beyond those walls, have all proven extremely valuable to me. I would strongly recommend the program to any leader looking to think more strategically about healthcare's future."
