About the Human Resources Fellowship Program
The Human Resource Administrative Fellowship is a leadership program that serves as a means to develop a broad experience in a fellow’s career that will foster their professional development across the Human Resources disciplines including:
  • Talent Acquisition
  • Organization Development
  • HR Information Services
  • Compensation
  • Benefits
  • Employee Services
  • Physician Recruiting and Development
  • Strategic Business Partnerships (Employee Relations/Field HR) 
Program Structure
Over the 18-24 month period, the Fellows have the opportunity to rotate through and experience aspects of nearly all of the HR disciplines, as well as exposure to understanding hospital, clinic and corporate healthcare operations. HR Administrative Fellows are exposed to a broad range of hands-on experiences that will prepare them for a successful careers in the Human Resources field. Joan Mollohan, System Vice President of Human Resources and Jan Brien, Vice President of Human Resources, serve as the executive preceptors for the Fellows and coordinate involvement with all levels of administration within the organization.
Fellows will focus on core competencies related to Talent Acquisition, Organization Development, HR Information Services, Compensation, Benefits, Employee Services, Physician Recruiting and Development, and Strategic Business Partnerships (employee relations and field HR).  After the completion of these rotations, fellows will experience a more focused training associated with organizational need matched with candidate’s interest.
Each rotation will serve as a learning experience for the fellow by testing abilities, as well as instilling applicable system and divisional knowledge related to the strategic plan of our organization. Applicable project work will be assigned within each rotation in order to ensure the Fellow’s progress is meeting the expectations of the program. In addition to departmental designated projects, fellows will also have the opportunity to seek out projects that meet their personal career objectives.
Leadership & Mentoring
Professional development is a fundamental component of the HR Administrative Fellowship Program. Fellows will be assigned to a preceptor who will be responsible for serving as a mentor throughout each rotation. Project reporting, progress evaluations, and feedback will be facilitated by preceptors to ensure continuous competency development of each fellow. Fellows will also have the opportunity to collaborate with executives and senior administration throughout the duration of the program. Examples of Fellow participation and leadership interaction include:
  • Monthly Operating Reviews
  • System Quarterly Reviews
  • Various Senior Leadership Meetings
  • Strategic Planning Sessions
The HR Administrative Fellowship offers a competitive salary and benefits package for the duration of the fellowship rotation.
Career Path
The Fellowship program aims to provide a strong foundation for each participant’s career. This foundation should lay the framework essential to pertinent organizational and leadership skills within Human Resources.  The program prides itself on aiding the Fellows in finalizing employment at the end of the Fellowship. Often times, this employment is within the Ochsner Health System.
