Health Administration Fellowship Personal Statement Sample, Indian Woman Applicant

I am flexible as to the location of the fellowship position that I will accept for next year; thus, my criteria have more to do with quality and mission than location. It would be a special honor for me to be accepted to the XXXX Health System's Administrative Fellowship Program for a variety of reasons, most of all the sheer excellence of your health care system and the way that it serves as a model for the industry at large. Many people in health care are aware of the way in which XXXX speaks to the top level of excellence in health care. What is particularly unique and noteworthy to me, however, among the many strengths of XXXX, is your appreciation and promotion of diversity. While born and raised in the USA, both of my parents are from India; thus, in many ways I consider myself to be just as Indian as they are. My Sikh culture is important to my identity, sense of destiny, and vocation. I went to Sunday School growing up and then later volunteered as a substitute teacher and an organizer, giving back, helping our local community. I am also nearly fluent in Spanish and this helps enormously for me to build bridges here in the USA. Spanish-speaking people appreciate it that an Indian woman took the time and made the effort to learn how to speak their language well. This helps me to open doors in health care, to help the underserved, excel in advocacy, and XXXX would be the perfect location for a young Sikh-American woman to continue to enhance her diversity skills contribute to the cutting-edge performance of your institution in the area of diversity appreciation.

 

I keenly look forward to serving at XXXX as well as XXXX. Being selected for the Mount Sinai Administrative Fellowship would provide me with the opportunity of a lifetime, to give my all to health administration on the global cutting-edge, providing me with optimal preparation for decades to come. I especially appreciate the comprehensive nature of your program, facilitating the fellow’s opportunity to practice and gain state-of-the-art competence in nearly every operational aspect of the XXXX Health System. I could not be more excited about the prospect of learning all of the ins and outs of the administration of such a distinguished and advanced health care system. I see your fellowship program in preparation of the hospital executive leadership teams of America’s tomorrow, to be the finest in the country. I look forward to project work and observation at the executive level and assisting with the development of winning strategies for the hospital. I seek the fullest possible immersion experience in the day-to-day operations of a major, academic medical center. My experience thus far, especially in my current position at a leading health care organization with a patient-centered delivery focus, will enable me to hit the ground running and excel. Becoming a health-care administrator gives me the opportunity of working with the doctors and nurses whose community I admire and company I crave, and to make a critically important impact. I see my professional role as not only an administrator but also as an organizer and promoter of the organization that I look forward to serving. I want to improve the face of healthcare by improving ongoing practices and creating sustainable, progressive change. I hope to put the additional knowledge and experience that I will gain as a fellowship recipient to good use throughout my professional lifetime in healthcare administration, making a difference in the quality of care patients receive. It would be a special honor for me to participate in a study of creative ways to reduce healthcare costs without having a negative impact on quality of care. Since I put my career first in my life, through a lot of focus, determination, and hard work, I aspire to ascend the corporate ladder and eventually attain a position as an executive leader. I thank you for considering my application to XXXX.

Health Care Administration, Partially Disabled Physician, Innovative Thinking

I am a qualified physician who suffers compromised immunity following serious ill-health. My situation demands a change of career and I believe that I can still make the difference to patients’ lives that I hoped to make as a physician by acquiring the skills and knowledge that the program offers and working in a leadership role in health administration. During my intern year as a physician and during many months receiving out-patient and in-patient care, I observed a number of apparent inefficiencies, and procedures and systems that I considered open to improvement.  I want very much to be part of the solution to the challenges that the health system faces especially those relating to the aging population that will affect resource allocation and call for innovative thinking in order to meet patients’ reasonable expectations.

What healthcare will look like in 2020

Great Accomplishments in Health Care Administration

There are some key accomplishments that have been achieved by the health care administration sector in the USA since the health reform began and access to care improved markedly. Here are some facts for you.

  1. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, an estimated 20 million people have gained health insurance. For the first time in American history, more than 9 in 10 people now have health insurance. 
  2. Among African American adults, the uninsured rate has declined by 53 percent since 2013, resulting in 3 million people gaining coverage. 
  3. Among Latino adults, the uninsured rate dropped by 27% since 2013, resulting in 4 million people gaining coverage. 
  4. The gains for women have been particularly rapid: the reduction in the uninsured rate since 2013 has been 13% higher than the reduction for men.
  5. Among young adults, the uninsured rate has dropped by 47% since 2013. Together with pre-2013 gains due to young adults’ option to remain on a parent’s plan, 6.1 million young adults have now gained coverage. 
  6. Prohibits coverage denials and reduced benefits, protecting as many as 129 million Americans who have some type of pre-existing health condition, including around 19 million children
  7. Eliminates lifetime and annual limits on insurance coverage and establishes annual limits on out-of-pocket spending on essential health benefits. This benefits 105 million Americans, including 39.5 million women and nearly 28 million children.
  8. Expands Medicaid to all non-eligible adults with incomes under 133 percent of the federal poverty level, meaning 4.4 million uninsured people will gain coverage. If the remaining states expand Medicaid, over 4 million more uninsured people would gain coverage and benefit.
  9. Establishes a system of state and federal Health Insurance Exchanges, or Marketplaces, to make it easier for individuals and small-business employees to purchase health plans at affordable rates. During the most recent open enrollment, 12.7 million people selected a plan through the Marketplace, and more than 400,000 people signed up for Basic Health Programs (state-based programs supported by the Affordable Care Act which provide health insurance coverage to low-income individuals who would generally otherwise be eligible to buy qualified health plans on the Marketplace). 
  10. Created a temporary high-risk pool program to cover uninsured people with pre-existing conditions before 2014 reforms, which helped more than 130,000 people.
  11. Creates health plan disclosure requirements and simple, standardized summaries so over 170 million Americans can better understand coverage information and compare the benefits.

After Health Reform: More Affordable Care 

  1. Creates a tax credit that, during the most recent open enrollment period, has helped about 10.5 million Americans who might otherwise be able to afford it sign up for health coverage through Health Insurance Marketplace. 
  2. Requires health insurers in order to provide consumers with rebates if the amount they spend on health benefits and quality of care, as opposed to advertising and marketing, is low. Last year, 5.5 million consumers received nearly $470 million worth of rebates. Since this requirement was put in place in 2011 and continued into 2014, more than $2.4 billion in refunds will have been paid to consumers. 
  3. Eliminates out-of-pocket costs for preventive services like immunizations, some cancer screenings, contraception, reproductive counseling, obesity screening, and behavioral assessments for children. This coverage is guaranteed for more than 137 million Americans, including some 55 million women. 
  4. Eliminates out-of-pocket costs for 39 million Medicare beneficiaries due to preventive services like cancer screenings, bone-mass measurements, annual physicals and smoking cessation. 
  5. Phases out the “donut hole” coverage gap for nearly 10.7 million Medicare prescription drug beneficiaries, who have saved an average of $1,945 per beneficiary so far. 
  6. Creates Accountable Care Organizations consisting of doctors and other health-care providers who come together to provide coordinated, high-quality care at lower costs to their Medicare patients, creating many jobs. Over 477 staff members are serving nearly 8.9 million Medicare beneficiaries nationwide

Incredible, isn’t it? Health care administration has changed so much in recent years. How will you serve the American people through health care administration? How would you change the system?
