The Center for Connected Care has a one- or two-year Telehealth Leadership Fellowship. As healthcare strives to connect an expanding pool of patients to their health care providers, Telehealth is poised for massive growth. Thomas Jefferson University is leading the nation’s adoption of telehealth with expansion in four key domains: outpatient care; transitions in care; inpatient care; and academics, with its JeffConnect Program, National Center for Telehealth Education & Research (NCTER); and Center for Connected Care. In this unique setting, Fellows will become leaders in telehealth practice, education and research.
In this unique setting, Fellows will graduate as both telehealth researchers and program leaders.
Telehealth Leadership Program has four components. These core areas, and their associated competencies, continuously complement one another and work to build a foundation of telehealth & leadership success:
- Leadership Skills Development
- Academia & Research
- Clinical Experience
Fellows will be immersed in a diverse educational environment while learning the business and medicine of telehealth. Working with management teams across Jefferson and private sector partners, they will develop and lead telehealth use cases while building their leadership and administrative skills. Utilizing team based learning, hands on application of knowledge, and simulation training, the curriculum is informed by the principles of experiential and self-directed learning theories to foster knowledge in four core areas of study. These core areas, and their associated competencies, continuously complement one another and work to build a foundation of telehealth & leadership success.
