A Smart Investment for Your Organization
and our Evolving Health Care System

Tomorrow's dynamic, yet uncertain health care environment will demand strong leaders. Help prepare for the future by nominating yourself or other senior-level executives within your organization for one of the limited spots in AHIP Foundation's Executive Leadership Program for Medical Directors.

Who is the Ideal Fellow?

Fellows are senior-level professionals working in a health insurance plan. They exhibit a high level of professionalism and possess strong executive leadership and succession ability. They demonstrate a proven track record in health care and potential to drive the industry forward. 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 provide fellows with an opportunity to share the challenges they are facing in an evolving marketplace, while learning from the tangible experiences of today's most prominent leaders.

A Program Designed Specifically for Health Insurance Professionals

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.

Program Designation

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.
