Applications Open for Excellence in Governance Fellowship, Prepares Trustees to Lead

The MHA Excellence in Governance Fellowship is now available to healthcare board members looking for innovative, effective ways to lead their organizations as hospitals and health systems navigate financial strain and labor challenges. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2023-2024 Excellence in Governance Fellowship, which will be held from October 2023 through June 2024.

Launched 20 years ago, the fellowship is a rigorous and comprehensive program delivering tools and knowledge in four strategic areas: principles of effective governance, improving quality and patient safety, building collaborative medical staff partnerships and building strong relationships with the community and stakeholders. The sessions are led by experts in governance with a healthcare background.

With the busy schedules of board members in mind, fellows can expect to meet four times a year, either in-person at the MHA headquarters in Okemos or through virtual sessions. Graduates of the fellowship have high praise for the fellowship, as demonstrated by a video of  graduates’ testimonials.

Members looking to further explore this one-of-a-kind offering can contact Erin Steward at the MHA.
