Governance Fellowship Applications

Governance Fellowship ApplicationsApplications are due June 30 for the 2022-2023 class of the MHA Excellence in Governance Fellowship, which will be held from October 2022 through June 2023. Board members and executives who want to hear more about the fellowship experience can watch a video of  graduates’ testimonials  explaining the value.

The fellowship is focused on the functions of governance, leadership development and gaining insight into meaningful healthcare issues. Four strategic areas are covered in person: principles of effective governance, improving quality and patient safety, building collaborative medical staff partnerships, and building strong relationships with the community and stakeholders. Virtual sessions held in the months the class does not meet in person address additional topics, among them social determinants of health, healthcare employee burnout and resilience, and workforce shortages and development. All sessions are led by experts in governance with a healthcare background.

Discounts are available to organizations with an enrollee in the current class and for more than one applicant for the 2022-2023 class. To further explore this one-of-a-kind offering or to notify the MHA of intended applicants, contact Erin Steward at the MHA.

Fellowship Helps Trustees Think Critically About the Future

EIGF

EIGFStrategic thinking is a critical skill for all healthcare leaders, and the future belongs to organizations whose governing boards, working in strategic partnership with management, help envision the future and assist in discerning and framing questions the organization should ask of itself to prepare for the future. Fulfilling these duties takes knowledge, preparation and action, which is why hospital leaders should strongly consider enrolling board members in the MHA Excellence in Governance Fellowship.

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 fellowship is designed for both fiduciary and community governing boards, teaching trustees to think more critically about governance and healthcare issues.

Fellows meet in person four times a year at MHA headquarters in Okemos and participate in virtual sessions held in the months when fellows are not meeting in person. This format is designed to give board members the opportunity to fit this valuable learning into their busy schedules.

Graduates of the fellowship have high praise for the fellowship, as demonstrated by a video of graduates’ testimonials. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2022 – 2023 Excellence in Governance Fellowship, which will be held from October 2022 through June 2023.
