"It's a small investment for professional development that's really unavailable anywhere else. When the fellows return to the organization after the year of the fellowship, they're changed. They're forever changed. They're bolder thinkers. They have courage. They're leaders. They challenge the thinking in the organization. It's a great program."
Frank Fanshawe, VP Corporate Affairs, MVP Health Care
Tomorrow's dynamic, yet uncertain health care environment will demand strong leaders. Help prepare for the future by nominating yourself or senior-level individuals within your organization for one of the limited spots in AHIP Foundation's Executive Leadership Program for Medical Directors.
Fellows are senior-level professionals working in a health plan. They demonstrate an unwavering commitment to health insurance and the new directions it takes. They embrace the challenges ahead. They value the program's unique combination of mentoring, classroom sessions designed by health insurance professionals, and site visits that focus on strategic management and techniques.
The programs stand above general education programs as they're designed for the health insurance community, for health insurance professionals. In addition, the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University serves as the program's academic partner and setting for one of the academic sessions, reinforcing the outstanding education Fellows appreciate.
Upon successful completion of the program, Fellows are recognized with the Certified Healthcare Insurance Executive (CHIE) designation—an endorsement of quality, comprehensive continuing education, and professional development. Recognized throughout the health insurance plan community, over 1,000 health care executives and medical directors hold this distinguished designation.
