For the past seven years, I have maintained a conceptual continuity in my professional and academic pursuit of quality service to the healthcare systems of New York. The ____ Medical Center provided me with a working environment like that of ____ Medical Center, as both serve as campuses for colleges of medicine. I have gained mastery of managing several projects simultaneously, working directly with insurance companies, and coordinating procedures and authorizations on behalf of the Director of Neuro-ophthalmology. I have dealt extensively and successfully with various issues in operational effectiveness to enhance the excellence of services provided. While ____ is one of NYC’s finest hospitals, ____ is a leader on the national level.
Throughout my time with ____ Health Partners of ____ Hospital, I continued to work in an academically affiliated environment and had the privilege of serving as a departmental director. As I was completing my BS in Business Administration and later my MBA, my responsibilities grew, training and supervising employees, increasing the amount of time I could dedicate to more advanced projects, especially researching viable funding opportunities for future research. I was dealing with issues many healthcare administrators deal with, such as working with regulatory readiness issues for special FDA and IRB projects, along with budget and human resources issues. Recently, I have been screening vendors, to decide which new products and services fit best with our department’s aims as well as providing compilations of data for the Department of Health.
I am actively involved with the American College of Healthcare Executives and Health Leaders of New York, helping to organize conferences and lectures. I give back to the community by volunteering my time with the American Cancer Society and Lambda Theta Epsilon sorority.
XXXX Medical Center’s Fellowship program of study is simply the most elite program of study in the field of healthcare administration in the country. The number of fellowships awarded annually is reassuringly small, giving me great confidence that my future as a leader in the field is all but guaranteed. Combined with this is the global reputation of XXXX as a national leader in healthcare which speaks of an unparalleled academic experience in a setting filled with real-world experiences and opportunities for professional development. While my professional experiences have been highly preparatory in terms of the challenge and opportunity to work with the Fellowship program, I need additional guidance in three principal areas: the improvement of healthcare performance; operational effectiveness; and ambulatory services.
Through an academic relationship with ____, I will be better equipped to deal with the business side of healthcare, to address the more pressing issues of expanding healthcare systems and services while reducing the cost to the patient. At the same time, I will be a more effective leader in my community, volunteering in preventative medicine and education. My MBA combined with relevant experience in the healthcare industry will aid me invaluably in your program and my career, and enrich the experience of my classmates, as well. There are countless opportunities in the field of healthcare administration, and standing in the middle of it, one cannot see its edges. Being selected for your distinguished Fellowship program would enable and inspire me to earn a Ph.D. Degree in my field.
