Fellow Perspectives

“The administrative fellowship program at CHI St. Luke’s is unparalleled. It provides an autonomous experience and exposure to any unique and specific interest area within a complex organization. The fellowship has enough structure that also allows full flexibility in how facility rotations and leadership rounds are conducted. Even when I was interviewing at CHI St. Luke’s, I was confident that it would a once in a lifetime prestigious experience in my career. Just a few days into the program, I learned that the organization’s leaders viewed my work as they would from a member of their own senior leadership team. This fact impacted me and my career as it made me a much more empowered individual. It is a full year to discover or further develop your unique leadership style to prepare you for the real world.”

“The CHI St. Luke’s Health fellowship was a great way to start my career in healthcare administration. During my fellowship I worked alongside executives, learning their leadership styles and developing my own leadership values. Our fellowship provides the unique experience of learning from the top senior leadership of a health system that has both local Texas and CHI national responsibilities.”

“From talking to many of my former classmates at other organizations, I can say that the fellowship experience at CHI St. Luke’s was unique in several ways. First, the level of access for our fellows is enormous. There is so much to explore across the 22,000 square miles in the CHI Texas Division. In addition, the quality of our preceptor Michael Covert and our mentors on the executive team is unmatched. They are dedicated to investing in our fellows, and in return, they hold us to high standards as members of the senior leadership team.”

“The CHI St. Luke’s Health Fellowship Program has been the most formative experience I have had as an early careerist. The Fellowship offered a level of exposure that is not available, except to executives. Additionally the ability to be involved in high-level projects across the organization allowed me to better understand and appreciate all of the components of a health system, from corporate services to hospital operations.”
