Who drives innovation? Hospital leaders with the skills, network, and experience to drive change. Build all three by joining the next class of fellows.
The Texas Hospital Association Leadership Fellows Program is intended to bring together health care leaders for a focused study in becoming effective health care advocates, and developing comprehensive knowledge on health care integration. The program provides a collaborative and dynamic curriculum, which discusses the challenges of complex adaptive systems.
THA fellows will grow as leaders and will be fully equipped to lead policy discussion, drive integration and create an environment that enables the best possible patient care outcomes.
Fellows engage with a diverse group of health care experts with varying perspectives and participate in a curriculum that sparks open, active dialogue and debate. Fellows will be transformed and their way of thinking forever changed.
The program consists of four modules taken over the course of one calendar year. Fellows meet in Austin at THA Headquarters. Each module consists of five elements:
Key policy core competencies.
Real-time legislative updates.
Quality and patient safety issues.
Leadership and building engagement and
Learn From Industry Experts
Through THA's connections, fellows will interact with thought leaders in the following areas: patient care, governance, advocacy, quality and patient safety, state policy, and federal policy.
Fellows will have the opportunity to highlight their skills, areas of expertise and knowledge not only in the classroom discussions, but also through the group project presentation at the THA Annual Conference and Expo. In addition, all fellows are recognized at the annual conference and receive a certificate of completion. They also are recognized in future marketing collateral and on the website.
The program will include lectures, panels, facilitated discussions, project development and competition as well as a mentoring/coaching component.
The program will feature a business case or project aimed at solving real-world problems for Texas hospitals.
