Program Features:

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.
