“They say everything is bigger in Texas, and our administrative fellowship lives up to the billing. There is so much to explore within the 22,000 square miles in the CHI Texas Division as an administrative fellow. We have 17 hospitals, dozens of outpatient sites, and hundreds of clinics and other care sites at your fingertips. In fact, if the CHI Texas Division were a state, it would rank right behind West Virginia in terms of size. It’s an enormous variety of healthcare settings that you can explore as an administrative fellow.”
