Message from the CEO

Cathy JacobsonThe Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network highly values our opportunity to develop the next generation of health care professionals.  These individuals are passionate about the health of their community and committed to transforming our system from generating volume to producing superior value in the delivery of health care.

The Administrative Fellowship is a program known throughout our organization.  During their fellowship, our Fellow has the opportunity to gain exposure to a variety of settings; an academic medical center, community-based hospital, and a large community physician practice provide a well-rounded experience.  Throughout the project-based fellowship, the Fellow will have opportunities to develop skills, interests and goals working alongside senior leadership across the system, and is embraced as one of the team, invited to attend executive retreats and meetings.  The summation of these experiences leads to a comprehensive understanding of our system and the entire health care landscape.

I strongly support the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Administrative Fellowship program, as I realize that, with the many challenges facing the health care industry, it is important to invest in the future leaders within the field.  Upon completion of the program, the individual will be sufficiently prepared to think practically, critically, and innovatively, while developing the necessary skills to support and implement the essential changes in health care.  Our Administrative Fellowship is designed to produce administrators who understand a health system’s accountability to get patients the right care at the right place and the right time, who assure quality care, and who wisely use the resources available to them.  I hope that you consider joining the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin family and I look forward to building a lasting relationship with you.
