AHA Leadership Fellowships

AHA Health Care System Reform Fellowship
The Health Care Transformation Fellowship is an intensive, 9-month program to provide health care leaders with skills to help their organizations implement innovative delivery and payment system transformation models. The fellowship curriculum addresses a variety of health care transformation topics including:

  1. Clinician alignment and leadership;
  2. New care delivery models;
  3. Navigating financial risk in the volume to value transition;
  4. Population health management;
  5. The integration of health information technology; and
  6. Evolving partnerships with payers, employers, community organizations and other non-traditional partners.

Through a combination of in-person educational sessions and web seminars, participants will learn about the challenges and key success factors to implementing these models through first-hand accounts from organizations that have already started down the path. Fellows will also complete a defined nine-month project, with the goal of advancing their organizations’ efforts towards health care transformation.

Patient Safety Leadership Fellowship
The AHA/NPSF CPSLF program has been suspended and is not accepting another class of fellows. At this time, the National Patient Safety Foundation is looking at suitable ways to support this fellowship in the future with the intention of adding a new venture to an already rich legacy.

If you would like your name to be added to a contact list for future opportunities and updates, please email Patricia McGaffigan or visit the NPSF website to see the exciting, innovative work being done.
