An administrative fellow's fresh perspective can serve as conscience to the hospital. We empower our fellows to learn about our programs and processes by raising vital questions that always bring real-life knowledge to the Fellow and often bring challenge to the status quo. When that happens, the administrative fellow serves as a true catalyst to innovation, contributing to his or her own professional growth and the hospital's well-being at the same time.
