Event Category:

ICAHN's Rural Health Fellowship is an 8-month rural health leader development program for new c-suite and c-suite track individuals from Illinois' critical access hospitals, rural hospitals, or other rural health organizations.  The program will give participants a deeper appreciation of what sets rural health care apart from urban, and a greater understanding of what rural leaders are called to do in their position. The Fellowship will focus on four key pillars: rural health, operations, finance, and healthcare leadership, and will transform thinking while challenging Fellows to grow as leaders.

ICAHN will select up to 15 highly motivated individuals to participate in the 2020-2021 Fellowship. Applications for both Fellows and Mentors will be open from August 17- September 15, 2020, with selection announced on October 1.

Fellowship key elements:

  • Robust and collaborative learning curriculum, including in-person sessions and interactive zoom sessions that will meet twice monthly beginning October 28 through May 5, 2021.
  • Mentor pairing with an experienced rural health leader through the duration of the Fellowship.
  • Building, planning, or implementing a rural healthcare project of your choice, and presenting your project at the conclusion of the Fellowship.

In addition, Fellows will  be recognized at the ICAHN Annual Conference and will receive a certificate of completion. ACHE credit is offered.

Fellowship program costs:

Cost of  participating as a Fellow is $2500.00.  One thousand dollar ($1000.00) scholarships will be available to accepted participants from ICAHN member critical access hospitals.
