A Message From Your President
Summer is finally here and hopefully the rain has moved on! Thank you for everyone who attended our Affinity Groups Networking event at III Forks. It was a great event with over 100 participants! Our MED U program started on April 10 and has gotten off to a great start. We have seven physicians enrolled in the 10-course program that meets monthly. MEDU is tailored to physicians new to administrative positions and those wanting to advance to Fellow status in ACHE with the BOG exam.
CHEF has some upcoming collaborative events that we hope to see everyone at:
September 26 – ACHE/CHEF Fellowship program – This program gives the early careerists an opportunity to get hands-on experience in operations, strategic planning, governance, and community services.
Thursday, September 26, 2019, 5:30pm – 8:00pm
Rush University Medical Center’s Searle Conference Center
1725 W. Harrison Street, 5th Floor, Room 500, Chicago, IL
October 2 – ACHE/CHEF Consulting, Insurance and Association Program -As emerging leaders enter the workforce, they have enormous career opportunities, but limited worldview as to what employment opportunities exist outside of the provider network. This program introduces students to the employment possibilities in association, consulting, and insurance management. Come and meet the leaders in these industries who will discuss their visions and career opportunities.
Wednesday, October 2, 2019, 5:30pm – 8:00pm
