              "It is difficult to share just one enjoyable aspect of the fellowship as the entire year still remains the highlight of my career. This fellowship provided me with a unique opportunity to learn complexities of a health care system from front-line patient care, to board-level decisions to understanding and navigating around the elements of culture, leadership and so much more that is involved in healthcare management. From shadowing a surgery at Bryan Heart to spending a night in the ER at Bryan West to process improvement projects with the EVS and distribution teams to visiting top nation cancer centers as we strategized for Bryan Cancer Center - the opportunities and learning experiences in the fellowship were endless. The executives at Bryan were actively engaged in the fellowship program and willing to share information and advice openly - even years later, I still reach out for advice and keep in touch. This year was an extremely rewarding and positive experience that transformed me both personally and professionally. Both Bryan and the community of Lincoln welcomed me with open arms and made me into an effective healthcare leader that I am today."
