The Administrative Fellowship Program Quotes from Previous Fellows

"My administrative fellowship at Children's Mercy challenged and inspired me in many ways. My expectations for establishing relationships, gaining professional experience and refining my skills were indeed met and often surpassed. My observations and assimilation into a culture that fulfills its mission on a daily basis, however, was just as meaningful."

Jared Vavroch, 2010-11 Fellow

"As I began the Administrative Fellowship, I had an understanding that I would spend my time learning the 'ins and outs' of a leading pediatric hospital. Much to my surprise and benefit, that ultimately was only a small component of the education and developmental leadership I received. The experience challenged me to learn more about myself, cultivate relationships, and refine the expertise and skills needed to become a healthcare leader in the future."

Kevin Mroczka, 2009-10 Fellow

"The Administrative Fellowship program at Children's Mercy exceeded my expectations in every way. I was fortunate to experience nearly everything a large pediatric health care system has to offer; both clinical and administrative. The fellowship program also provided the unique opportunity to guide a young administrator from a pediatric hospital in China through Children's Mercy for a three-month period. This led to an opportunity to travel to China, and see pediatric healthcare as it is practiced on the other side of the globe. The fellowship opened many doors, provided tremendous opportunities, and put me on track to continue developing the skills and relationships necessary to be a successful administrator in the pediatric health care environment."
