During the orientation phase, the fellow will have an intensive orientation to federally qualified health centers, Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic, and the unique needs of our target population. Orientation will include tours of YVFWC sites.
The majority of the fellowship will be spent on track focused work (see fellowship track descriptions in the overview). The fellow will be matched to an executive mentor to develop projects, key deadlines, and deliverables.
Rotational Short Term Projects
The rotational model allows the fellow to gain exposure outside their assigned fellowship track. These experiences can include shadowing senior level management, supervisory experience, planning/design process, and departmental improvement projects in human resources, clinical operations, program operations, quality, managed care, and finance.
Self-Directed Community Service
Community service is at the heart of what we do. Throughout the duration of the fellowship, the fellow will participate in community service projects involving our target patient base.
