Fellows spend approximately their first six months rotating through 25 clinical and administrative areas throughout Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Each rotational experience, lasting anywhere between 1 and 5 days, gives the fellows the opportunity to meet various leaders and quickly gain a comprehensive understanding of Academic Medical Center operations.

During this phase, fellows will gain competency in the following areas:
In the final phase of the program, Lead One, fellows are matched with a Patient Care Center or Core Service Area where they are given opportunity to leverage their prior learnings to work with increasing autonomy and responsibility on various projects or programs according to their interest and institutional priority.
