“As a fellow, I squeezed four or five years of relationship building into one year, learning the business side of medicine from the best minds in our organization.
When we demonstrate improved quality, hospitals are willing to partner with us on initiatives and allocate new resources to our HM programs that help save the lives of patients.
About three months into my fellowship, I stepped into the role of Medical Director at Sonora Regional Medical Center.”
