Members of Johns Hopkins leadership share their thoughts and insight on the Johns Hopkins Medicine Administrative Fellowship program.

Redonda Miller

“At Johns Hopkins Medicine, we have a rich history of nurturing extraordinary talent in all facets of our work. Our JHM Administrative Fellowship program begins by identifying thinkers and doers with potential to be super stars in health care administration and then introduces them to the frontline work. The bonus for us is that so many of our administrative fellows are inspired by the collaborative and forward-thinking culture here and choose to remain at Hopkins after their two years. I count many former fellows among my closest colleagues and am grateful for their insights and deep expertise.”

“The JHM Administrative Fellowship is a wonderful way to broaden exposure to care across the entire healthcare system. I particularly appreciate the value that fellows add by sharing their prior experiences and exhibiting a strong desire to learn new skills.”

Nicki McCann

“Johns Hopkins Medicine is at its heart a teaching institution. There are world-class providers and researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine who are always willing to share their expertise and knowledge in a way that helps shape health care delivery and policy. The pace of change of health care delivery and policy is increasing, with a focus on decreased costs and improved patient safety and quality. Johns Hopkins Medicine has always been at the forefront of health care innovation, and today is no different. The JHM Administrative Fellows always bring a fresh perspective and enthusiasm to health care policy issues that reinvigorate efforts to make positive changes to health care reform.”

Charlie Reuland

“It is a great privilege and honor to be part of the selection, mentoring and ongoing support of the JHM Administrative Fellowship program. Having been active in the program for many years, I am enormously proud of the talented people we’ve brought in, some of whom are contributing leaders in our institution, and some of whom are accomplished leaders at other institutions. With teaching being a defining attribute of Johns Hopkins Medicine, embedding education in our operations is important for administrative training, just as it is for clinical training. And our fellows add value from the day they start, inspiring us to be forward-thinking, innovative and current in our approaches.”

“The JHM Administrative Fellowship is a cornerstone of our institution in terms of talent acquisition. The program is a built-in talent pipeline of future administrative leaders that will push our organization into the future. I’m proud to participate in this process and cultivate the future of Hopkins.”

John Hundt

“I am privileged to have worked with the JHM Administrative Fellowship program for over 25 years. One of the things that has kept me at JHM for many years is the continuous learning environment of which the fellowship program is an integral part. I have benefited from the input of the fellows just as I have been able to help the fellows learn in their roles. Now more than ever, this fellowship program is a great kick-start for a career in healthcare leadership.”
