“The fellowship program at JPS was the perfect platform for transitioning out of school and into my career. It has allowed me to build relationships across all levels of the organization that have helped me grow personally and professionally. It helped me solidify what my particular skills and interests are, and led me directly into a full-time position that is closely aligned with those interests. JPS serves a unique and vital role in the Fort Worth community. It is a fantastic work environment with a mission-driven culture -- I would recommend the fellowship and internship programs to anyone looking to jumpstart their career in healthcare administration.”

“A fellowship is crucial for the post-graduate development of a young professional in health administration. JPS Health Network is fully invested in its fellowship program, allowing its fellows to rotate throughout the organization and work on a wide variety of projects and initiatives. During my time as an administrative intern at JPS, I quickly became enamored with the organization’s emphasis on putting the patient first. The supportive leadership and the culture of JPS, along with the opportunity to work on projects having an immediate impact on patients’ lives, made applying to the fellowship program a no-brainer. As a fellow, I have the opportunity to work on amazing projects and learn from some of the brightest minds in healthcare every day. I would recommend the JPS Administrative Fellowship program to anyone who is thinking about pursuing a post-graduate fellowship.”

“As an administrative fellow at JPS Health Network, I truly feel like I am a part of the JPS family. I love being able to make a difference in patients’ lives through my projects and other work. JPS is a large healthcare organization with several opportunities to be involved in projects that are in line with my interests and goals. The leadership at JPS has established a patient-centered culture with a devotion to constantly improving the patient and employee experience. One particular aspect about the fellowship that I love is rounding on patients and team members with the executive team. Each week I am continuously impressed by the stories our patients tell us about the amazing care they received from our providers and clinicians. I am proud to be a part of JPS and am humbled to be able to learn and work in such a supportive and caring environment.”
