Throughout your rotations, preceptors will serve as mentors and offer professional guidance and support. Your preceptor will be a financial vice president in the given area of Emory Healthcare that you will be working in and can either be an entity-based or system-level executive.
Year 1 Orientation – During the first few weeks of the fellowship, you will be on-boarded to EHC. You’ll have an opportunity to meet the leadership team of the Physician Group Practice (PGP) and will meet all of the leaders within PGP who will be sponsoring your various rotations.
Rotations – During the first year of the fellowship, fellows will rotate through different areas of PGP, including PGP Finance, Revenue Cycle, Physician Compensation, and Physician Recruitment.
Clinic Budgeting – During the first year of your fellowship, you’ll work within a clinical section to assist in the development of the next fiscal year’s budget.
Year 2 Orientation – During the first week of the second year of the fellowship, fellows will meet with the finance leadership team for the Hospital Group (HG), Corporate Finance (EHI), and Revenue Cycle. Finance leaders will present project opportunities for you to select from with the support of your preceptor.
Projects – During the second year of the fellowship, you’ll work on your selected projects throughout the Hospital Group, Corporate Finance, and/or Revenue Cycle. Projects may last from 3 months to 12 months. You may work on just one project in a particular area or multiple projects through several areas.
Senior Leadership Meetings – Throughout both years of the fellowship, you’ll attend several recurring leadership meetings at both the Emory Healthcare system level as well as the entity level. In these meetings, you’ll learn more about issues impacting healthcare systems within the US, as well as specific issues affecting Emory Healthcare.
Evaluation – In January and June of each year, your preceptors will provide an official evaluation. Fellows receive informal feedback on an ongoing basis.
